Practice doesn’t make perfect, perfect practice makes perfect — Vince Lombardi
Simulation education is a bridge between classroom learning and real-life clinical experience. The Simulation Teaching and Research Center (STAR) is a comprehensive simulation training environment for our students, residents, fellows, and faculty. For over a decade the STAR Center has worked to enhance educational opportunities, improve patient care, and disseminate research focused on simulation-based education and patient safety. The STAR Center, which is part of the Department of Emergency Medicine, also offers programs for nursing, critical care fellows and faculty, OB/GYN, pediatrics, family medicine, and many others throughout the Mount Sinai Health System.
