Internal Medicine – Learning Resources
The simulation lab on the PSHMC campus enables medical staff and students to experience lifelike medical situations through use of robotic manikins.
The lab is a large space that includes a room for task trainers, an ICU bay and OR in addition to classroom space.
- Provide collaborative, team-based training for in-house code teams
- Practice managing emergent and life-threatening conditions in a safe, controlled learning environment
- Use sophisticated, high-tech human patient simulators to provide the learner with a more realistic experience
- Manikins include infants, children, pregnant moms and life-like adults
- Training scenarios can be pre-programmed into the manikins and customized to the level of the learner and repeated as needed for a consistent, quality educational experience
- High-risk procedures can be practiced repeatedly using task trainers (LP model, thorax for thoracentesis, Central line manikin)
As part of a comprehensive board review process, starting in their R2 year, senior residents receive access to MKSAP and and are scheduled to complete questions throughout the year.
