Overview

The Hennepin County Medical Center Interdisciplinary Simulation and Education Centers (ISE C) provides a guided, safe environment for healthcare professionals to practice real-life medical situations and procedures. Participants learn proper techniques, refine interpersonal skills and build confidence in their abilities. As a multidisciplinary training center, ISE C 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.

The 10,000 SF Simulation Center uses a full range of state-ofthe-art learning modalities to provide the most realistic hands- on education possible. Simulation rooms are wired with video and monitoring capabilities and one-way glass for observation. The first phase completed in 2012 consists of two high-fidelity rooms designed to simulate ICU, emergency trauma and operating room scenarios, supported by conference rooms, education space and a training room. The second phase will add two more high-fidelity rooms and education space when completed in 2014.
