Simulation Learning Center


Simulation is learning like you've never experienced before.

Used by the military and aeronautics industries for many years, simulation has been reimagined for health care professionals and first responders at Holy Name Medical Center. Here at our Teaneck, New Jersey campus, we offer an authentic, immersive environment in which to master skills, improve teamwork, reduce errors and increase safety, while cultivating decision-making and communication skills.

What is both virtual and real?

Simulation education takes place in an environment that's between the classroom and the real world. Using high-fidelity mannequins that blink and breathe, often in concert with specially-trained actors, Holy Name's simulation staff creates scenarios that mimic real-life situations. Every exercise unfolds as it would in reality, with unanticipated behaviors and responses.

When is faking a heart attack a good idea?

Our realistic encounters run the gamut from medical emergencies, such as cardiac arrest and adverse drug reactions, to interpersonal challenges like delivering bad news and conflict resolution. Every exercise is videotaped, and concludes with a debriefing, during which students reflect on the experience and have the opportunity to discuss solutions that will promote better outcomes.

What optimizes quality and safety?

Learning on the job can be risky when your work involves protecting the health and security of the public. Simulation education enhances performance by taking professionals through the motions of real situations with challenges and consequences, without jeopardizing safety. So when they return to the hospital, fire house or street beat, they are more confident and prepared than ever.

Simulation Students Are:
  • Health Care Professionals
  • Law Enforcement
  • Minimize risk and medical error
  • Emergency Medical Personnel
  • Firefighters
Simulation Education Optimizes:
