Simulation Curriculum Development
Simulation Training Facilities
The IU Health Simulation Center at Fairbanks Hall serves as the primary training site. It is a 30,000 square-foot facility containing ten clinic rooms, five inpatient rooms, three acute care rooms, an operating room, a delivery suite and a simulated ambulance bay. Multiple high-fidelity and low-fidelity mannequins are available, including adults, children, babies, newborns and a birthing mother. The center is equipped with dedicated debriefing rooms with full AV support to debrief and support skill development.
Additional training sites include:
- IU School of Medicine Surgery Skills Lab
- IU School of Medicine Cadaver Lab
- Eskenazi Hospital Simulation Lab
- Emergency Response Training Institute (ERTI)
- IU School of Nursing Simulation Center
- IU School of Medicine Terre Haute Simulation Lab
- IU School of Medicine–Bloomington Simulation Lab
- IU School of Medicine–Evansville Simulation Lab
- Simulation labs throughout the IU Health Hospital Network
This program strives to train and support the development of future leaders in medical simulation. The program leadership takes the responsibility of training simulation fellows very seriously. We foster a challenging yet supportive environment. Continuous formative and regularly scheduled summative feedback is employed to ensure reinforcement of strengths and immediate identification of perceived areas of improvement with corrective planning aimed at graduating strong, confident, and well-rounded simulation faculty leaders.
