"The simulators available at Rush have many life-like factors that enhance training, such as blinking eyes, exhalation of carbon dioxide, chest movements, crying, coughing, palpable pulses, and much more."

Thanks to a grant from the Chicago Community Trust, the facilities have recently been renovated and expanded into a structure that can be converted into an operating room, emergency room, or intensive care unit. Audio and video systems in the adjoining conference room and classroom enable trainees to observe teaching sessions and interact with the instructor. Most importantly, these audiovisual capabilities allow faculty to provide guided performance feedback to trainees whose simulation scenarios have been recorded.

As part of the renovation, four new simulators were added to the existing adult, child and infant simulators. The new acquisitions include a more realistic baby simulator, a laparoscopic simulator, a neonat
