LOYOLA UNIVERSITY MEDICAL CENTER
Loyola is home to the Center for Simulation Education, which encompasses several distinct facilities, largest of which is the 7,000-square-foot Walgreen Family Virtual Hospital. It was built in 2012 and is used by a variety of programs within Loyola Medical Center, as well as by Loyola’s Medical, Nursing, and Public Health schools. Our selection of high-fidelity manikins can be used in our six simulation resuscitation bays, allowing for multiple simulations to run simultaneously.
In addition to high-fidelity simulation, multiple medical specialties, including Emergency Medicine, use our simulation center and equipment for procedural and OSCE training in our Advance Procedure Education Center (APEC) and Selfridge Clinical Skills Center, all of which is accessible to our fellows, depending on their specific interests. Within the APEC, our fellows have access to VR, Oculus, and Smart Glasses, allowing for the exploration of new and upcoming technologies in the field of simulation.
Our Emergency Medicine residents use our simulation center bi-weekly, which provides ample opportunities to teach and debrief with EM trainees. Simulation electives offered for both our residents and medical students fosters simulation-specific mentorship within our center. Additionally, Loyola houses both paramedic and EMT training programs, giving interested fellows the opportunity to work with EMS trainees. We also have faculty development sessions to round out training opportunities for all levels of learners.
Our Director of Simulation, Dr. Trent Reed, also serves as an Assistant Dean for Simulation Education and Chair of the Department of Medical Education at the Stritch School of Medicine. The scale of Dr. Reed’s experience increases opportunities for our fellows to gain significant exposure to medical student education and curriculum development. Loyola’s Center for Simulation Education has experienced staff, which provides a rich learning environment for fellows to learn more about simulation center management, technology, moulage, and other hands-on skills.
