Traveling for Care?
Whether you're crossing the country or the globe, we make it easy to access world-class care at Johns Hopkins.
Improving safety for patients is our number one priority.

The educational mission seeks to teach students and trainees better diagnostic and communication skills using video assessments. The center encourages nursing, respiratory therapy, medical students and house-staff to learn and practice procedures “on plastic” before performing procedures on patients, enhancing both the educational experience and patient safety. In addition to skill enhancement, the center also serves the purpose of assessments and offers certification or credentialing required by various regulatory bodies.
The Simulation Center contributes to the Johns Hopkins research mission by identifying more advanced and effective educational methods. In addition, Hopkins’ research teams are involved in exciting research using simulation as a diagnostic tool to understand the root causes of errors in team settings.
The Simulation Center will promote patient safety by incorporating five types of simulation including:
