The Anesthesia Center for Education, Research and Evaluation is a new program that supports simulation activities for anesthesiology residents, fellows and faculty. The simulation program is a critical training component that allows residents and fellows to focus on communication, teamwork and crisis resource management while developing critical skills and behaviors in simulated realistic scenarios. The facility includes spaces to simulate care and scenarios in ORs, ICU, PACU, patient rooms and the ER. CUMC has made a major commitment to simulation in medical and nursing education. This is the first dedicated facility to open on campus.
