As the first medical society ever to receive accreditation from the Society for Simulation in Healthcare, we are an international leader in providing hands-on learning opportunities. Our new Innovation, Simulation, and Training Center is a state-of-the-art education facility that includes:

  • A-3,200 square foot auditorium, with ample storage and up-to-date technology, offering the ideal setting for educational lectures and forums
  • Small group training rooms for problem solving and peer exchange
  • Six simulation training rooms designed to mirror real ICU suites
  • A wet lab that enhances the robust experience of simulation training

We offer programs with a strong clinical focus on improving patient care in:

  • Airway Management
  • Bronchoscopy
  • Ultrasonography
  • Mechanical Ventilation
  • Pulmonary Physiology, Function, and Testing

Our simulation program combines evidence-based medicine with technologically advanced simulation education techniques and hands-on learning to:

  • Provide advanced, hands-on, clinical education experiences for participants from a wide scope of practices.
  • Integrate a variety of task-trainers, low- and high-fidelity simulators, and actual medical devices to provide optimal learning opportunities.
  • Use multimedia tools to enhance presentations and record the events.
  • Emphasize current standards of practice, patient safety, evidence-based patient care, and formative assessments.
  • Offer courses led by expert clinicians in their respective fields of study.
  • Support the Certificate of Completion Program.

Simulation Education With the Proven Leader

An important component of the Advanced Clinical Training program is simulation education. We are an established leader in simulation education, providing programs with a strong clinical focus for improving patient care. Since 2005, more than 5,000 physicians have benefited from our simulation education programs.

We use world-renowned, dynamic faculty: more than 250 physicians from leading hospitals and academic institutions, representing key disciplines. A student to teacher ratio of 5:1 or better ensures focused, thoughtful attention and a performance-based, hands-on assessment for each participant.

Each year, we host the world’s largest simulation education event in the simulation center during our CHEST annual meeting: serving more than 1,000 physicians in nearly 25,000 square feet of space, featuring state-of-the-art simulation technology and education.
