Yale Center for Healthcare Simulation

  • Education & Research

    The Yale Center for Healthcare Simulation (YCHS) is a safe space for learning, where mistakes can be a learning tool, for medical students, physician associate students, and residents. Medical students gain hands-on experience and participate in various simulations starting with their first course, through the Capstone course in their final year, where they have the opportunity to participate in a simulation that provides the experience of being the only intern on the floor while taking care of patients on an overnight rotation.

    All members of the Yale School of Medicine and Yale New Haven Health System medical community have access to the simulation lab for research purposes..

    Education & Research

  • Simulated Participants

    Yale School of Medicine’s Simulated Participant (SP) Program provides learners at any level with a safe and effective space in which to acquire and practice their skills. The SP Program has expertise in designing and implementing training scenarios as well as case and character development to meet your learning objectives and program goals.

    We employ a diverse population of SPs to ensure learners receive training on engaging with the wide range of people they will interact with in practice.
