Our state-of-the-art medical education training centers incorporate some of the world's most advanced healthcare technologies available, including patient simulators.
Through the use of human patient simulators and other advances in medical education technology, our centers give medical students and healthcare professionals the opportunity to simulate patient conditions and the patient experience in a wide variety of clinical situations.
Patient simulators offer a safe way for medical professionals to practice new technologies and advanced procedures without putting real patients at risk. They are computer controlled and can be programmed to react in very human ways. Medical training with patient simulators helps to increase patient safety, facilitates the evaluation of new medical technologies and encourages the adoption of new skills.
Our Simulation Fellowship Program offers the opportunity to develop individuals as leaders in simulation-based healthcare education. It also provides opportunities for research in the field of simulation-based education.
The optimal candidate will have at least two years of experience in a surgical specialty, but applications will be accepted from physicians outside of surgical specialties, as well as from those individuals pursuing advanced education degrees. International candidates and those with interrupted training tracts or careers will be considered.
The fellowship is funded and has been accredited by the American College of Surgeons.
Located in the McConnell Heart Hospital at Riverside Methodist, this is state-of-the-art medical training facility uses four adult patient simulators, one pediatric simulator and one of the first infant patient simulators in the world.
