Transforming healthcare with simulation-based education, research and innovation.
We are national leaders in medical simulation.
At Northwestern Simulation, part of Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, we use exceptional simulation-based training to improve cognitive, technical and professional skills of healthcare providers. Our ultimate goal is to transform healthcare through education, innovation and scholarship. We emphasize respect, collaboration, safety, high-impact research and cost-effectiveness in all our activities.
Our state-of-the-art facilities on the Northwestern University Chicago campus feature clinical simulation, surgical simulation, virtual reality and meeting spaces. First-rate equipment and adaptable rooms allow for customizable setups and realistic representations of numerous medical scenarios.
We work with healthcare industry partners, including medical associations and medical device companies, for research, training and product testing.
The lab develops and adapts training devices and models for use in medical education and research across the country.
We collaborate with Feinberg affiliates to help provide resources for educational technology, curriculum development, and diversity and inclusion.
Every year, we serve thousands of students virtually and in-person across a wide range of educational programs, from undergraduate to continuing medical education.
