Sim Center Video of the Week: Penn State Hershey
Check out this great new Simulation Center Video from Penn State Hershey:
The Penn State Clinical Simulation Center opened our new facility on January 20, 2010.
The Penn State Hershey Simulation Center is an institutionally supported collaboration originally started by Anesthesia, Surgery, Nursing and Penn State College of Medicine. The Center is dedicated to advancing the state of the art in medical simulation. To this end, we incorporate the latest equipment and methodologies into our curricula, as well as develop, test, and validate new educational tools.
The initial collaboration between three departments has grown into a whole-hospital facility. Because of our interdisciplinary approach, we are able to take advantage of expertise in a number of areas and incorporate them into a curriculum or program as it is undergoing development. This is true not only of multiple disciplines, but also of multiple educational levels.
