Collaborative, Interprofessional, State-of-the-Art
The Clinical Simulation Laboratory is a collaborative effort of the UVM College of Medicine, the UVM College of Nursing and Health Sciences, and Fletcher Allen Health Care, serving as a centralized hub in the training of health care professionals with the ultimate goal of improving quality and safety of care.
The Clinical Simulation Laboratory brings together individuals, groups and teams for hands-on learning experiences designed to improve clinical, collaborative, and communication skills. Simulations are further enhanced by the integration of standardized patients and advanced technology in settings that reflect actual trauma, operating room, in-patient and ambulatory settings.
Improving Patient Care
Contemporary health care requires competency-based instruction that often relies on simulated experiences to prepare learners for patient care. The Clinical Simulation Laboratory enables trainees to use well-founded simulation principles to develop and maintain clinical skills and competencies to augment patient safety and improve patient care.
Serving the Community
Through comprehensive practical team training and innovative skills programs, the Clinical Simulation Laboratory serves as a valuable training resource for the Vermont Army and Air National Guard, Emergency Medical Technicians and Paramedics, and health care providers across Vermont and throughout the region.
