We are committed to using these emerging technologies in order to improve medical education, patient safety, and communication via the Graduate Medical Education core competencies and the Emergency Medicine Milestones.
The Cook County Simulation Training Center is an integrated simulation center that utilizes a wide variety of simulation modalities including procedural skills task trainers, high-fidelity mannequins, and standardized patients.
Founded in 2005, by Dr. Michelle Sergel, the Cook County Simulation and Training Center was established within the Department of Emergency Medicine. For several years the center provided simulation training for the Emergency Medicine Residents. Currently, it has expanded to provide simulation-based medical education for the medical providers of Cook County Hospitals and Health Center Simulation Center, including Provident Hospital and Cermak jail.
The CCH Simulation Center now utilizes high-fidelity mannequins and task trainers. The center provides a hands-on experience for many of the departments at Cook County Hospital and Health System. In 2018, the CCH Simulation Center moved to the new Cook County Health Professional building with the expansion of space for simulation and American Heart Association credentialing for the hospital system.
