Clinical Simulation

Our Mission is to promote, enhance, and develop medical education by replicating realistic clinical experiences in a safe setting thru best practices and innovation.

The Baylor Scott & White Medical Center - Temple Clinical Simulation program, in conjunction with Baylor College of Medicine, provides education and training to medical students and health care professionals in Central Texas.

Our program uses high and low fidelity mannequins and patient actors to provide learners a risk free environment in which to practice and learn various procedures and methods.We support in situ mock codes, task trainer based skill building, communication training using simulated patients, and formative team training along with the capability to create novel simulation experiences.

Central Texas regional hospitals and clinics

Our mobile simulation lab is used to assess and train health care providers onsite at regional hospitals and clinics.

The mobile unit allows providers and staff the opportunity to perform simulation scenarios on manikins in a familiar and safe environment — their own hospital or clinic.

The mobile unit has an array of high fidelity simulators and standardized patients to portray realistic scenarios. Our mobile team is equipped to assess and offer simulation training on many scenarios  including but not limited to:

  • Adult Rescuscitation utilizing ACLS protocols
  • Pediatric Resuscitation utilizing PALS protocols
  • Neonatal Resuscitation utilizing NRP protocols
  • High-risk Obstetrics
  • Acute Trauma (Adult and Pediatric)
  • Mass Casualty (Adult and Pediatric)
  • Difficult Airway Management (Adult and Pediatric)
  • Malignant Hyperthermia
  • Team training with emphasis on communication skills (Team STEPPS)
  • Quality/Risk Management:
    • Time Outs
    • Sentinel events - Root Cause Analysis
  • Professional Competencies
  • Just in Time - assessing new hospitals, policies and procedures at a system level

Request an Activity

We are happy to work with your team to create customized learning scenarios or execute existing scenarios from our Scenario Library.

Please submit a request for an event using our Request forms. You can choose from a Standardized Patient( SP) Event or a Simulation Event. Should you require a hybrid of both, please only fill out one form

Standardized Patient Program

The Standardized Patient Program manages all standardized patient participants in educational, research and/or assessment activities for Baylor Scott & White Medical Center – Temple and Baylor College of Medicine - Temple.

Standardized patients are individuals who have been coached to consistently and accurately portray an actual medical condition or disease, including a patient's history, physical findings, personality and/or behavior.

Standardized patients are utilized in training activities for medical students, residents, nurses and allied health professionals.
