The simulation lab provides a learning experience designed to move trainees closer to their personal education and professional goals.
The Jersey Shore Simulation Lab is leading the way in the innovation of how medical care is taught and learned. Through the simulation lab, you will undergo an experimental and simulation-based clinical experience that replicates patient interactions and prioritizes patient safety.
Examination rooms in the lab allow you to have an active role in your learning. These rooms provide you with an environment modeled after real-world clinical settings where interactions with standardized patients are recorded and reviewed under professional supervision. The lab develops clinical muscle memory by providing the space to safely make mistakes, learn, and retry.
The Vice President of Academic Affairs of Hackensack Meridian Health leads the Simulation Lab, which is hospital and academic affiliated through Jersey Shore University Medical Center. One of the four academic hospitals in the Hackensack Meridian Health System, Jersey Shore, sponsors over 18 ACGME accredited residency programs, including programs in all primary core specialties.
Simulation is not new to medical training. In 2012, certain ACGME Residency Review Committees started to require simulation training in response to a sudden increase in deaths related to medical error. Simulation training provides medical trainees with a real-world environment to improve technical skills training for complex, rare, and dangerous situations.
Through simulation learning you can:
