The surgery simulation and training space at Gillette is expertly designed to support care planning, training opportunities and community outreach programs. With a large operating room, advanced equipment, and observation and classroom space, we can meet a wide variety of educational needs.
We use our surgery simulation space to educate staff and trainees, plan complex procedures and provide school outreach with the interprofessional learning model in mind. The space is also available to outside organizations, by request, to support their training and educational needs.
Simulation allows medical teams and trainees to practice procedures and techniques—including surgeries, critical care situations, communication strategies, and many other scenarios—in a risk-free environment. Using true-to-life facilities and advanced technology, teams can work through processes and hone their skills before working with patients.
The goal of simulation is to create a safer patient experience by preventing medical errors and improving outcomes. Simulation brings the following benefits:
We can arrange our surgery simulation and training space into a variety of true-to-life medical environments. We also offer a wide range of advanced technology to support diverse educational needs.
Unique among regional simulation centers, our space includes a replica of Gillette’s large operating rooms, which are designed to accommodate multidisciplinary surgical teams and advanced imaging equipment. The space also includes a large classroom and observation area.
In addition to arrangements that allow for surgery simulation, we can also set up other environments, including:
Our physical spaces are supported by advanced technology, including:
