In addition the center provides a multi-disciplinary approach to training and competency improvement with an Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) recertification course. Recertification in the Center for Patient Simulation allows for all members of a code team to gather, practice and review efforts in a mock code situation. In addition, a moderate sedation course is offered once a month. These courses are open to all clinicians who are employed at the University of Utah Health Sciences Center.

If you wish to rent the patient simulator for your own educational training or for research, please check the calendar for availability and contact Diane Tyler for current rental rates. Instructors are available or you may provide your own instructor. Rates quoted will include staffing to operate the simulator.
