Overview

The Simulation Center at Froedtert & The Medical College of Wisconsin provides an environment for team-based, hands-on training for faculty and staff to work closely with each other as one cohesive care team. This 10,200-square-foot unit is designed to foster collaboration and excellence using innovative training methods and teaching tools to increase safety and ultimately, deliver better care to the community.

The center consists of a large skills lab and four simulation settings that mimic typical healthcare environments such as a patient room, operating room, ICU patient room and trauma bay. In these settings, a variety of simulated hospital cases can take place, including birth simulation, surgeries, trauma, emergency medical procedures and general care.

Simulation-based training accelerates the learning of critical processes, thinking skills, communication, and teamwork in a safe learning environment. The overall design reinforces Froedtert & The Medical College of Wisconsin’s brand, which is medical excellence delivered in a sophisticated yet accessible environment that inspires staff to perform at their highest and deliver exceptional patient outcomes.
