Training at the simulation center is woven through the entire curriculum for the pediatric residents at GHS. During orientation, they participate in a procedural and skills bootcamp to jump start their preparation for intern year. Each month, small groups of residents work as teams to evaluate, manage and resuscitate in simulated neonatal, infant and child cases. Residents are also able to complete PALS/NRP/ACLS training right on campus through the GHSC.
The Greenville HealthCare Simulation Center (GHSC) is among the most sophisticated simulation-based learning and research centers in the United States, with 18,000 square feet of purpose-built space equipped with simulation, multi-media and information technology. Located on the second floor of the USC School of Medicine Greenville on the Greenville Memorial Hospital Campus, GHSC encompasses simulation, clinical skills, and a willed body donor program.
GHSC was one of the first 30 simulation centers in the world to be accredited by the Society for Simulation in Healthcare (SSH) in 2012. This is the highest honor attainable by a Center in recognition of its efforts in Center operations, healthcare system integration, and teaching and assessment standards.
