Simulated Learning Center
The center is equipped with sophisticated training simulators for students and physicians, including SimMan 3G®, SimBaby™, Harvey®, and Noelle®. These simulators incorporate challenging clinical scenarios by utilizing the latest interactive software. Clinical skill assessments are performed individually and in small-group sessions. Students are able to apply their Basic Sciences knowledge to clinical situations early on, giving them an advantage when they begin clinical rotations.
SimMan 3G® is so lifelike, it trains students to treat patients in dozens of clinical scenarios and includes a controllable open/closed airway passage, realistic breathing and pulse, bilateral chest tube insertion, and simulated hemorrhaging, and he even sheds tears.
SimBaby™ is an advanced infant patient simulator that trains students and physicians in infant care. Simbaby’s lifelike anatomy includes realistic breathing, circulation, and vascular access points.
Noelle® is a brand-new birthing simulator that provides the complete birthing experience from prenatal to birth. It provides students with the skills they need for OB/GYN clinical rotations. Noelle includes a realistic birth canal, C-section abdominal inserts, simulated human tissue, and programmed delivery system – either rapid response or a long labor.
Invented by revolutionary medical educator, Dr. Michael S. Gordon of the University of Miami’s Miller School of Medicine, state-of-the-art cardiopulmonary simulator Harvey® is the gold standard of educational tools for first responders, physicians, and military personnel when it comes to life-saving techniques. Named after Dr. Gordon’s mentor, cardiologist Dr. W. Proctor Harvey, it includes 25 different cardiac functions, including varying blood pressure, pulse, heart sounds and murmurs. Harvey® has been endorsed by the American College of Cardiology Task Force. He appears in videos that are a part of the American Board of Internal Medicine’s computer-based skills recertification exam as well. Once Harvey® became synonymous with clinical skills education at U.S. medical schools, nearly all British medical schools began including Harvey® in their curricula, as did The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. In total, more than 600 institutions worldwide teach cardiopulmonary medicine by utilizing Harvey®.
