About Our Simulation Center

With our vision to revolutionize healthcare through state-of-the-art simulation, the Hennepin County Medical Center Interdisciplinary Simulation and Education Center (ISEC) provides a guided, safe environment for healthcare professionals to practice real-life medical situations and procedures. Using leading edge simulation equipment, participants learn proper techniques, refine interpersonal skills, and build confidence in their abilities. As a multidisciplinary training center, ISEC conducts educational programs for nurses, physicians, pre-hospital providers, and other allied health professionals from HCMC, as well as community groups from across the region.

Program Description

The fellow will collaborate with multiple disciplines, including their own discipline, to develop simulation and skill based curricula. They will be involved in planning logistics as well as running and debriefing simulation sessions, both within the simulation center and in-situ. Opportunities to be involved with sessions involving individual departments / units as well as interprofessional teams will be available. While concurrently being enrolled in a masters level program, the fellow will be able to combine formal education with experiential learning and direct feedback, maximizing the opportunity to acquire and refine their knowledge and skills. The fellow will also be involved in development and implementation of non-simulation based educational activities for learners in their home department.
