The Center for Excellence in Healthcare Simulation offers state-of-the-art resources and a variety of clinical focused learning opportunities ranging from fundamental skills to high-fidelity simulation. Located on both the Westchester and New York City Campuses, with a combined 15,000 square feet, the Simulation Labs use Standardized Patients (actors who play the role of patients), task trainers, and high fidelity manikins to train both undergraduate and graduate students in a multidisciplinary approach.
Scenario-Based Educational Experiences
Students practice skills, develop critical thinking, and improve performance in a safe and nurturing environment. These labs promote advanced communication skills between the different disciplines, interprofessional collaboration, multiple patient management, and the essential skills to learn to work as a team to help improve patient outcomes.
