Hello, and Welcome to the Yonsei University College of Medicine Clinical Simulation Center.
Here, everyone from undergraduate students to healthcare professionals can obtain a hands-on clinical patient care experience, and become proficient in techniques used in clinical practice under simulated and virtual conditions - similar to those encountered in real life.
Let’s take a closer look at the facilities and activities that take place at the Clinical Simulation Center.
The Center is comprised of four simulation rooms and ten Clinical Performance Examination rooms and Objective Structured Clinical Examination rooms. Additionally, there is a Skills Laboratory and a Conference room, where debriefing and lectures are held.
Simman-> Comprehensive patient simulator ,
Harvey-> Cardiopulmonary patient simulator,
Megacode kid-> Advanced pediatric patient simulator,
Simbaby-> Advanced infant patient simulator
This is the Simulation room. Here, we have various simulators, from high-to-low technology and fidelity. These simulators are used for various target groups and purposes.
Utilizing a high-technology simulator, students can practice treating patients in a simulated emergency room setting. Behind a one-way mirror, instructors can evaluate each student’s performance and give appropriate feedback when necessary. Meanwhile, in a neighboring room, fellow students can also observe and learn from their peers’ performance.
Here is another example of a high-technology simulator. This simulator provides a comprehensive cardiology curriculum by realistically simulating various cardiac conditions.
These simulators are available for training and assessing pediatric and infant clinical cases.
The Clinical Performance Examination room was designed to reflect an outpatient consultation room setting. Here, students gain experience in medical history taking and physical examinations to diagnose and to make treatment plans for patients with various symptoms. Behind a one-way mirror, instructors can observe and evaluate each student’s performance.
In an adjacent room, a student is practicing a Spinal Tap Procedure, while in another room a student is practicing examining a pregnant woman prior to delivery.
In General Surgery, students practice wound closure on a swine model, as well as practice performing a breast examination on a standard patient.
In Nephrology, students practice inserting a urinary catheter.
While studying Pediatrics, students practice endotracheal intubation and cardiopulmonary resuscitation on an infant model.
In the Skills laboratory, students learn to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
In July 2011, our center signed a MOU with the Gorden Center for Research in Medical Education at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine in the United States.
Additionally, external academic groups hold various simulation workshops for healthcare providers here at our center.
Our center is open to anyone in the medical profession and anyone hoping to expand their competency of patient safety and improved quality of care.
