Clinical Simulation & Procedures

The University of Michigan is proud to offer residents the opportunity to train on some of the most advanced simulations in the world at the Clinical Simulation Center. This is a 13,500 square foot facility, spread across two locations, that is widely available for residents to train on pediatric mannequins in a variety of simulated clinical environments.


Our pediatric residents regularly participate in realistic, immersive simulation experiences in neonatal resuscitation, high-level trauma and management of critically ill patients. A procedural curriculum offers dedicated conference time for practicing required procedures with faculty instruction. “Mock Codes” require a team of residents to direct the resuscitation of a complicated patient from start to finish. After the encounter, debriefing and additional teaching is provided on an individualized basis. Through frequent practice, our residents are prepared to manage life threatening situations in the inpatient and intensive care units.
