Visiting a Training Center for Future Doctors and Nurses, This Week on Sound Medicine


Sound Medicine reporter Sandy Roob visits the Simulation Center at Fairbanks Hall, which is jointly operated by Indiana University School of Medicine and School of Nursing, and Clarian Health. Medical and nursing students work with high-tech mannequins that respond like real patients in an effort to gain experience and reduce medical errors before they enter doctor’s offices and hospitals. Host Barb Lewis will speak with the center’s director, Scott Engum, M.D., associate professor of surgery at the IU School of Medicine.

This week’s Sound Medicine “Checkup” will explore “phantom” vibrating cell phones with Paul DiZio, Ph.D., associate professor of psychology at Brandeis University.
