Education Programs

The Division of Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine at IU School of Medicine offers specialty training for medical students, residents, fellows and practicing pediatricians.

Simulation Program

Simulation Program

The Division of Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine at IU School of Medicine provides education for clinicians using simulation-based methodologies in the Sim Center at Fairbanks Hall (Indianapolis) to enhance learning, improve team performance, identify latent safety threats, successfully manage delivery room emergencies and emergencies that occur in the neonatal ICU and in infant nurseries outside the academic setting, and review technically challenging or infrequently used procedures.

The Training in Pediatric Simulation (TIPS) and Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP) programs educate students from the IU School of Medicine and School of Nursing as well as residents and fellows from multiple specialties, including pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology, and family practice. The Simulation Team also conducts Neonatal Resuscitation Program courses.

Simulation Instructor Course

The Simulation Education Instructor Program is designed to teach health care professionals to design and conduct simulation based medical sessions. This intensive course trains health care providers at all levels of experience in the skills necessary to initiate a simulation program. Learners create scenarios based on specific needs and then execute those scenarios with practice using video, embedded participants and moulage for added realism. Participants apply the debriefing techniques learned in the course.

Community Outreach Simulation Education

Community Outreach Education programs for pediatric multi-disciplinary teams are available for those outside the university who wish to review delivery room skills or less commonly used procedures. Training is geared toward multi-professional resuscitation teams in their own environment. Each educational program is specifically tailored to the needs of the participants.
