About Simulation Center
Simulation Training

The Penn Medicine Clinical Simulation Center includes human patient simulators set in realistic hospital environment for interprofessional training as well as task and virtual reality trainers for individual instruction in procedural skills such as central line placement, endotracheal intubation, laparoscopic procedures, and fiberoptic endoscopy. All sessions occurring in the Center can be viewed, recorded and replayed via a technologically advanced control center located in the core of the facility. The control room enables viewing live procedures taking place at Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania or in various rooms in the Simulation Center. The Center is an authorized provider of AHA courses, a test site for the SAGES Fundamentals of Laparoscopic Surgery examination and offers a full complement of courses designed for a broad range of medical specialties.  Finally, the Center houses the Penn Medicine Standardized Patient Program which is used by medical students, physicians, healthcare professionals and hospital administrators alike.
