The Sinclair Community College Workforce Development and Health Sciences Divisions are teaming up to provide hands-on training in critical situations to employees from the region’s hospitals and health care facilities.

Sinclair's Simulation Center allows current health care professionals to collaborate with Sinclair’s Health Sciences faculty to develop and deliver health scenarios that represent common patient interactions. Scenarios are tailored to partners’ needs, allowing them to create scenarios for specific training purposes including mock code situations, difficult airway cases, pediatric emergencies, and more. In addition, partners don’t have to tie up space at their facilities.

“Our partnership with Sinclair and their simulation lab has exceeded our expectations. From our first session, we saw a difference in the way the teams interacted and processed critical situations. This partnership has helped our leaders multiply their efforts and gain sustained results,” added Erica Schneider, Chief Operating Officer at the Kettering Health Main Campus.

“The staff really enjoyed the Sinclair Simulation Center atmosphere and appreciated having the ability to play out a realistic donor management scenario in a life-like ICU setting. It was also great being able to utilize a simulator on a mechanical ventilator to complete our physical assessment competency check-off," said Laci Baker, Recovery Service Manager – Life Connection of Ohio.

The Simulation Center is located inside Sinclair’s Ned J. Sifferlen Health Sciences Center at the Dayton campus.
