The Johns Hopkins Medicine Simulation Center

Last week, I had the pleasure of touring the Johns Hopkins Medicine Simulation Center. This is a training center that uses numerous types of simulations - everything from live actors to mannequin and online sims. As I toured the center, I tweeted a few pictures and some notes, which I am sharing below.

The Simulation Center is an extremely impressive training center and I was very pleased to have the opportunity to get a tour. You can learn more about the center at the following link - Johns Hopkins Medicine Simulation Center.


  1. I think a raychem ptc could also help you out for faster simulation of the center you're planning to implement and to establish. You could actually use several techniques in promoting this kind of developments in the future.

  2. Grace,

    I am not implementing a simulation center. I was just writing about one I had toured, but thanks for the suggestion.
