The center also includes a fully equipped computerized simulation room with simulators for practicing almost every procedure, as well as robotic surgery. Take a look inside to see what makes this a transformational training facility.
The Women's Guild Simulation Center is home to 13 robotic mannequins that can blink, bleed, talk, hyperventilate and give birth, as well as one anatomical simulator that looks and feels completely real and allows for practicing surgical techniques.
The Women's Guild Simulation Center offers a broad range of existing services and courses to challenge a variety of disciplines, and can customize training to meet specific needs.
Simulation education for physician anesthesiologists allowing them to problem-solve issues in a setting that closely replicates clinical experience during surgery.
The ALERT™ program is developed to provide the multidisciplinary healthcare team with a systematic approach to recognizing, treating and escalating to a higher level of care.
This program opens the Simulation Center to students interested in pursuing healthcare careers and gives them a one-day experience often available only to qualified staff.
Meet Ralph, Our Dummy
If you need a research environment for product testing and state-of-the-art simulation, or you're looking for a summer school program for kids or a highly realistic place to film a movie. Watch how our dummy Ralph at the Cedars-Sinai Women's Guild Simulation Center provides realistic training opportunities.
It takes a village of clinical specialists, nurses, administrators, coordinators, physicians and surgeons, executives and advisors to manage and operate the Simulation Center. Meet the team and committee members who help make this happen.
The Simulation Center and OR360 is an excellent location for your filming or photography needs. Filming is strictly restricted to production within the simulation spaces and cannot occur in other hospital location. Contact us if you are interested in booking.
Cedars-Sinai is committed to pushing the frontiers of medicine and discovering new technologies and innovations that will change the way we diagnose and treat disease. With your support we can change the future of healthcare.
