The Simulation Center

    Hands-on training without the risk  

nursing educationGenerous donations allowed St. Joseph’s to establish its first Simulation Center in 2006 with the initial goal of providing continuing education to newly graduated nurses, but over the years the center has grown into a highly interactive classroom for nurses- and doctors-in-training to practice patient safety and quality of care in a safe, realistic environment. 

The Simulation Center invites nurses- and doctors-in-training to transfer classroom learning into clinical practice. Participants benefit by practicing patient care on high-fidelity mannequins, which are controlled behind the scenes by experienced medical educators. The interactive instruction allows student nurses to gain skills and confidence before treating real patients.

For medical students, the center is also equipped with highly advanced robotic surgery equipment, allowing them to practice their tactility controlling this new techonology.
