Next generation of health care workers train through medical simulation

A typical simulation is hectic crying babies, people shouting in pain and asking for help. Students are orientated to the scenario and then must work together to efficiently treat several patients. Students are instructed to identify and alleviate various safety risks while communicating with the 'patients' and each other.

"Group simulation requires students to interact with other health professionals and care for patients as a team."
