Procedural Simulation

What is the Procedural Simulation Program?

The vision for the UAB Procedural Simulation Program is to create an evidence-based, standardized training module that includes simulation-based training for each procedure performed at UAB. These training modules can then be deployed to train multiple professions who perform the same procedure, truly creating an institutional standard, or the “UAB Way.” Creation of these training modules is a collaboration between clinical experts from multiple professions, simulationists, and educators. Simulation-based procedural training is designed and implemented using the Learn-See-Practice-Prove-Do-Maintain procedural skills acquisition framework.

How do I get involved?

To become involved in the procedural simulation process, you can train to be a procedural simulation facilitator and/or collaborate with UAB Clinical Simulation to create new training modules pertinent to your clinical practice or area of expertise. This program is available to providers and staff in the UAB health system.
