Mayo Clinic Multidisciplinary Simulation Center Receives Distinction as an ACS-Accredited Education Institute
Date:9/13/2007

es to build team competency in high-stress situations that are at once realistic, yet free of risk to patients. Participants learn through computer simulations, robotic mannequins programmed to respond as patients might, and human actors cast as patients. Just as aviation pilots master complexity through cockpit simulators, health care professionals across disciplines improve performance and reduce errors through simulation training at Mayo Clinic.

Deep Learning

The challenge now facing medical educators is: How can health care professionals master complex new bodies of knowledge, technologies and procedures while also taking care of patients?

Dr. Farley says the answer is through the deep and enduring learning that comes from practicing difficult techniques in a safe, supportive simulation environment. "Which physician would you want working on you or your loved one -- the one who got the test question right on an exam? Or the one who worked with a team, the equipment and patient model in a realistic simulated setting and had his or her performance reviewed, and then got a chance to do it again?"

Inside Mayo's Simulation Center

The term "simulation center" can mean many things. Some medical centers call the closet where a mannequin is kept for demonstrating cardiopulmonary resuscitation the simulation center. Not so at Mayo Clinic. Its Multidisciplinary Simulation Center is a newly built complex. Four of its larger rooms can be configured and equipped to be exact replicas of Mayo Clinic surgical suites, emergency rooms, intensive care rooms, or the cardiac catheterization laboratory. Like independent stages in a theater, these rooms have multipurpose functionality. Additional smaller rooms can be configured as inpatient hospital rooms, an outpatient clinic, and other areas.

Control booths, observation rooms, and high-tech cameras attached to every room allow medical educators to teach new techniques and simulate medical emergenci
