Introduction

Simulation is the art of making artificial events appear real. The value of simulation is its ability to mimic rare clinical events that occur too infrequently for care teams to acquire expertise. This unique educational tool offers teams the opportunity to work closely with each other to develop clinical skills, effective communication and teamwork skill sets. These skill sets are the foundation to fostering a culture of safety in Obstetrics.

Mission

The Center for Obstetrics and Gynecology Simulation offers simulation skill building and team training programs to educate nurses and physicians in developing a culture of patient safety.
