“Virtual” patients add realism to medical training

UNC Children's employes high-fidelity simulation training to improve how faculty, staff and student learners care for patients at N.C. Children's Hospital.

UNC was one of the first institutions - along with Harvard, Stanford, and the University of Florida - to add high-fidelity simulators to their education curriculum in the 1990s. Now the hospital has one adult simulator, three pediatric infant simulators, and three toddler simulators for classroom use. The pediatric simulators mimic the physiological variables of children.
