The Simulation Center at Texas Children’s Hospital opened its nearly 9,000-square-foot facility on November 4, 2009. The center, located on the 19th floor of the Feigin Center, includes simulets (standardized patient rooms), simulation theaters, debriefing rooms and clinical skills rooms, making the center ideal for immersive simulation training in pediatrics and obstetrics.
This multi-purpose room is used
for teaching and observation purposes, as well as for preparing students for
simulation exercises. It is equipped with video recording capabilities, a
projector, mannequin hookups and space for low-fidelity simulators used in
technical skills training.
Each of the 5 simulet rooms mimics a distinct
clinic or outpatient care room. Here, students encounter both standardized and
simulated patients while learning essential communication and diagnostic
Each of the two simulation theaters can be
set up to resemble an operating room, an emergency room or an acute care room.
Computerized simulators can respond positively or negatively to treatment from
caregivers, teaching learners to think quickly in difficult situations.

The labor and delivery room features
both a birthing and neonatal simulator. Here learners deliver a baby under a
variety of high-risk circumstances. The room features video-recording
capabilities and hook-ups for two high-fidelity mannequins.
Both debriefing rooms are used for
immediate review of simulation video-recordings and discussion. They offer a
comfortable, conference-style meeting space to facilitate educated dialogue and
