VA Palo Alto Health Care System
Open House for State-of-the-Art Simulation Center
VA Palo Alto Health Care System cut the ribbon today, November 22, to its State-of-the-Art Simulation Center at its main division in Palo Alto, Calif.
The medical center’s Simulation Program has pioneered the use of mannequin-based, fully interactive simulators in anesthesiology, intensive care, emergency medicine, and other clinical settings since the 1980s. Additionally, Veterans participate as actors to portray patients and/or family members during training sessions dealing with verbal communication.
The new Simulation Center continues to grow through the years. This new facility is its 4th location in the history on the VAPAHCS campus since 1995. The center is one of the largest in the entire network of VA Medical Centers.
