Rowan-Virtua SOM Simulation Center

Rowan-Virtua SOM's state-of-the-art Simulation Center provides a unique experience across all four years of undergraduate medical training. Our hands-on programs are designed to complement the curriculum that is taught both in the classroom and through clerkships. Watch our video to capture the simulation experience, as well as hear first-hand accounts from students and faculty on the vital role our center plays in their medical education.


About the Center

The new Simulation Center at Rowan-Virtua SOM includes:

  • Fourteen ambulatory-themed and four hospital-themed exam rooms with attached observation areas for standardized patient and simulator experiences.
  • One large procedural skills lab for medical procedure training.
  • Six new human patient simulators, including a Laerdal SimMan 3G adult mannequin, Laerdal SimJunior pediatric mannequin, and CAE Lucina birthing simulator.
  • Several procedural task trainers to teach skills such as phlebotomy, urinary catheterization, intubation, central line placement, joint injection, and more. 
  • Real and simulated medical equipment to assist in medical skills training; this includes defibrillators, crash carts, infusion pumps, and wall diagnostic equipment.   
  • A large cohort of highly trained standardized patients trained to present both common and complex medical scenarios. 
  • Seven meeting spaces of various sizes for simulation debriefing, lecturing, and presentation. 
  • State-of-the-art audiovisual equipment and data capture software that allow for convenient capturing and replaying of simulation events, teleconferencing, and live streaming of activities.
