Date:10/9/2007

DENVER, Oct. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Medical Simulation Corporation (MSC) is proud to announce that it is partnering with the Methodist DeBakey Heart Center in Houston to provide simulated education services. MSC's SimSuite(R) will help Methodist cardiologists and surgeons improve patient safety by enabling them to learn, practice and update surgical and interventional skills in a simulated, risk-free environment. Physicians can use this simulation technology to practice coronary, carotid, renal, iliac and femoral interventions.

"Simulation is a revolutionary and effective new teaching model that helps physicians keep abreast of ever-expanding medical technology," said Dr. Alan Lumsden, vascular surgeon at the Methodist DeBakey Heart Center. "The interaction between a high volume, experienced cardiovascular center and an advanced simulation company will assure the continued evolution of simulation technology into even more complex procedures."

Bill Younkes, MSC President and CEO commented, "MSC is proud to be associated with the Methodist DeBakey Heart Center, a leader in the advancement of cardiovascular and vascular care that is committed to enhancing the lives of its patients. We are particularly passionate about the opportunity to broaden the procedural experiences of the outstanding MDHC physicians in training, as well as exposing experienced physicians to newly developed procedures."

MSC is a full-service simulation-based education company dedicated to developing competent and confident healthcare professionals who provide high-quality patient care. Because real-life clinical scenarios are simulated, no patients are at risk while healthcare professionals continue to advance their technical and cognitive skills. The opportunity to train in a risk-free environment allows for lessons to be learned without consequence to a patient.

The MSC clinical curriculum focuses on courses for vascular surgery, cardiology, interventional cardiology and interventional radiology, as well as for the hospital-based nurse and emergency room teams. An onsite SimSuite Clinical Educator combines simulation tools with Web-based curriculum to deliver personalized training experiences to meet each institution's specific educational needs and quality objectives. Course participants may include physicians, physicians-in-training, nurses, technologists and industry representatives
