SimCOACH, a fully-equipped mobile simulation training center, will extend the capabilities and reach of the Palmetto Health-University of South Carolina School of Medicine Simulation Center. Team-based medical simulation training will be available for students, nurses, resident physicians, EMS, and military medical personnel, many of whom would have to travel from across the state to access this specialized training. By coupling high technology human patient simulators and experts in medical simulation, SimCOACH will provide health care professionals the opportunity to practice complicated procedures and clinical scenarios, from individual patient care to large scale disaster response challenges, without posing a risk to actual patients’ health. The result is fewer medical errors, reduced health care costs and improved wellness for citizens across our region. SimCOACH is made possible by a major donor to Palmetto Health Foundation as well as gifts from CAE Healthcare and Bank of America.
