Simulation-based Education

The Simstitute, or simulation institute, is a centralized resource intended to expand and strengthen the use of simulation-based education and related activities at the IHP. The Simstitute delivers training to enhance simulation skills and is cultivating a community of practice to engage and broaden learning as well as share best practices.

Simulation Lab

The Simulation Lab provides experiences in four simulation rooms, each equipped with a control room and live video feeds and capture. Simulation rooms replicate functioning acute-care inpatient rooms, labor and delivery settings, ambulatory practice exam rooms, and home environments. More than two dozen interactive simulation manikins, including birthing, infant, pediatric, and 3G SimMan adult manikins, allow you to get hands-on practice in a simulated real-world environment. Trained actors or simulated participants (SPs) provide practice in managing human engagement aspects of care delivery in busy practice settings.
