Julie took the 2nd place Student Award in Technology Innovation for her research abstract to be presented at the 14th Annual International Meeting on Simulation in Healthcare in San Francisco.  The title of her presentation is A Device To Allow Anterior-Posterior (AP) Defibrillation in Simulators Lacking AP Electrode Contact Points.

The Johns Hopkins Medicine Simulation Center is one of the research institutions that are a part of the INSPIRE network.  

The Johns Hopkins Medicine Simulation Center is a state-of-the-art medical training facility that incorporates five types of simulation including: 

  • standardized patients and teaching associates
  • human patient simulation
  • virtual reality
  • Task trainers
  • computerized simulation

Cutting-edge Technology for Research and Teaching

The main goal of the Simulation Center is to improve safety within patient care.  Current and future health care professionals “practice on plastic”  honing their skills, refining advanced techniques and learning valuable social interactive tools for delivering important news to patients.  This translational research becomes vital for creating the gold-standard in patient safety and medical teaching.

A partnership between the School of Medicine and the Johns Hopkins Hospital gave birth to the Simulation Center, which highlights the commitment of both institutions to providing cutting-edge technology in the field of health care.
