Tulane Sim Center control room

Tulane School of Medicine faculty running high stakes simulation training from the control room.

The Tulane Center for Advanced Medical Simulation and Team Training gives medical students, residents, practicing physicians, nurses, technicians, first responders and other healthcare providers the opportunity to learn and perfect the latest techniques and best practices for patient care and safety. 

An integral benefit of the Sim Center's effectiveness is the ability to take training beyond individual tasks to incorporate team training and multidisciplinary full system training.  The real-life environment allows healthcare providers to move as a team through initial assessment in an ER, to procedures in the OR or Labor & Delivery and end with long-term care in the ICU or patient hospital room.

The Tulane Sim Center features 14,000 square feet of real-life environments and meeting space for hands-on training, instruction and skills assessment.
