“Baby shower” at Simulation Center for new mannikin on April 25

The Simulation Center at the UND School of Medicine & Health Sciences has a new birthing simulator, Noelle, and we want to introduce her to the community! Stop by her “baby shower” in the Sim Center on Thursday, April 25, anytime between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. We’ll have light refreshments, voting on the name of the forthcoming sim-baby, and birthing demonstrations every 15 minutes! Stay for as long as you’d like.

The SMHS Simulation Center is a hands-on simulation training facility for multidisciplinary health care providers. The state-of-the-art space offers a clinical setting where health professionals can actively apply their knowledge in simulation, observation, and debriefing of real-life patient scenarios, with the goal of improving patient safety and care. The innovative facility, which makes use of several “robotic” patients or mannikins, is the largest and busiest of its kind in North Dakota; its mission is to use interactive simulation in teaching, educating, and providing an arena for research in health care.
