Making the Rounds- Summer 2020

Beneficiaries of Simulation The Kern Medical Simulation Center trains a wide array of professionals throughout the healthcare continuum, including medical students, residents and fellows, and nursing staff from all clinical areas, as well as our surrounding community partners. Our clinical programs incorporate the latest technology by simulating a real clinical environment. Training also emphasizes essential safety aspects such as teamwork and communication.

This simulation center will also be available to our Mujeres en Medicina Health Career Pathway Program. This program works with schools in underserved areas of Kern County to bring students into our hospital where they are exposed to various healthcare jobs and professionals in our organization. These students will now have the opportunity to participate in hands- on simulation workshops, increasing career interest in the medical field.
