Training Future Physicians at SIU School of Medicine

Simulab's Surgical Abdomen in training at SIU School of Medicine

The SIU School of Medicine and the Memorial Medical Center, located in Springfield, IL have designed a program for high school and college students as well as community members interested in learning more about a career in healthcare. The program, Hands-On Healthcare, provides the participants an opportunity to engage with current healthcare professionals and explore different paths available in a healthcare career. The program aims to motivate and inspire the young students who have shown an interest in medicine and provide them with real-life experiences. 

The recent curriculum included the simulation of a laparoscopic cholecystectomy.  Simulab was proud to have the Universal Surgical Abdomen Team Training System used in this educational opportunity.
