Who we are:
We are a program within the HealthPartners Institute, dedicated to improving patient care, safety, processes and systems through innovative, simulation-based clinical education. We focus on a partnered relationship between learners and clinical leaders to ensure that the learning is subsequently applied in the clinical setting.
Accredited Simulation Center
Accredited since 2011, we were the first simulation program in Minnesota, and surrounding States, accredited by the Society for Simulation in Healthcare. In 2016 we were re-accredited in Teaching & Learning, Assessment and Systems Integration.
We facilitate experiential learning opportunities at either the learner's location, in-situ (within actual clinical environments), or within the HealthPartners Clinical Simulation and Learning Center at Regions Hospital in St. Paul, Minnesota to promote teamwork, communication, skills mastery, clinical reasoning and systems improvement. Participants include: healthcare professionals in current practice as well as residents, medical students, nursing students, and advanced dental practitioner students.
