Simulation Center training

The Johns Hopkins Medicine Simulation Center offers several different training programs to meet your specific training needs.

In our manikin-based training, students “practice on plastic” with life-like manikins that simulate heart tones and other vital cues when connected to monitors, providing real-time information to students.

In our Standardized Patient (SP) Program, individuals trained to portray the roles of patients, family members or others allow students to practice physical exam skills, history taking skills, communication skills and other exercises

Our teaching associate programs including the Genitourinary Teaching Associate Program (GTA) and the Physical Exam Teaching Associate Program (PETA), are geared toward training health care learners and professionals in the areas of physical exam skills.
