Peg transfer is one of three skills that Northwestern Simulation uses to test surgical laparoscopic proficiency. We are a certified SAGES Fundamentals testing center, and test dozens of prospective GI surgeons every year.
Resuscitative Thoracotomy Trainer
David Salzman, MD, MEd, Director of Simulation for Undergraduate Medical Education, explains and demonstrates the Resuscitative Thoracotomy Trainer that was built with the Innovations Lab, in conjunction with Northwestern Simulation.
Our faculty members use research-driven best practices to improve trainee skills, enhance long-term skill retention and positively impact clinical performance with the ultimate goal of improved patient outcomes.
Hands Only CPR Demo
Simulation Specialist Steven Ford leads guests in this Hands-Only CPR Demo on task trainers (bottom left) and one of our SimMan® 3G models (top, bottom right). The SimMan® 3G can display the depth of compression that participants perform, along with various other feedback to help improve their technique.
Baby Delivery High Fidelity Simulation
Dr. Salzman walks participants though a birth simulator using SimMom®, one of our high fidelity simulators that is able to simulate labor and help learners improve maternal and neonatal outcomes.
Participants are able to walk through the birthing process, including helping Mom (with doctor supervision) deliver the baby safely!
Pediatric High Fidelity Simulation

Clinical Education Center
The Clinical Education Center (CEC) provides 14 outpatient exam rooms for students to learn and be assessed on wide array of clinical competencies, such as communication, history-taking, physical examination, counseling, clinical reasoning, patient safety, and advocacy.
