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.
