Denver, CO, November 12, 2008 Medical Simulation Corporation (MSC) announces a new partnership with the University of South Florida (USF) to provide simulation training and education services for USF Health hospital partners and for local and national health professionals seeking continuing medical education. The MSC SimSuite Education Center is located at Tampa General Hospital, a major teaching affiliate of USF Health.

"MSC is excited to partner with USF Health to offer its hospital affiliate team members and other health professionals new opportunities to enhance their skills in a risk-free environment," says Bill Younkes, MSC President and CEO. "Our SimSuite Education System provides a broad spectrum of tools to help USF Health advance its commitment to patient safety, high-quality care and excellence in education."

The 2,800-square-foot Center, includes several types of virtual patient simulators and a full-time coordinator to oversee all programmed simulator training scenarios. The technology can be used to recreate anatomy and clinical functions such as respiration; to teach basic techniques like cardiopulmonary resuscitation, intubation and tying surgical knots; to practice endovascular and cardiac catheterization procedures; and to hone surgical skills, particularly for laparoscopic and minimally-invasive surgeries.

"At USF Health we are transforming the way we educate the next generation of health professionals and challenging the way we practice healthcare," said Stephen Klasko, MD, MBA, CEO for USF Health and Dean of the College of Medicine. "The new SimSuite Education Center fits in with our creation of an innovative curriculum that strives for excellence in clinical skills development, with the goal of promoting patient safety and preventing medical errors."
