Our simulation experts can help you design, develop, and operate your own simulation center.
Whether building or expanding a simulation center, the STRATUS team has extensive experience, including internationally, in successfully navigating each of these elements. We can help you with:
Design and Develop Your Own Simulation Center
The first step in developing or growing a simulation center is performing a thorough needs assessment to determine your goals and objectives. While this likely includes designing the physical space and purchasing equipment, many failed simulation projects have stumbled here, resulting in empty rooms and expensive technology sitting dormant and losing value. It is critical to formulate educational processes, operational infrastructure, resource management, and financial models that align with the institution’s needs, values, and vision to fulfill the opportunities that simulation can bring.
STRATUS has extensive experience in developing strategies that will maximize the use of your center.
- Needs Assessment
- Design Physical Space
- Acquire Equipment and Simulators
- Operationalize and Grow your Center
Ongoing Support of Your Simulation Center
Once your center is up and running, STRATUS can provide services to support whatever challenges you face in your ongoing operations, via onsite consulting or through video conferencing. We typically recommend a stepwise approach which involves leaning heavily on our expertise at the start and then building your independence progressively and strategically as your capability, experience, and comfort levels grow.
Whether building a new simulation center or expanding your current program, the STRATUS team has extensive experience navigating a wide range of questions and challenges. We can help you with:
Whether you’ve been using simulation for years or are just starting out, STRATUS can help you identify the simulation modalities, teaching techniques, and technology customized to your environment and learners. Our curriculum development experts will walk you through this process to:
- Identify learning gaps
- Develop learning objectives
- Design a scenario or skill session to meet those objectives
- Link course content to assessments or milestones
