Simulation Training

The Simulation Lab at Cheyenne Regional utilizes high-fidelity manikins to create real, life-like scenarios for your medical training events.

Training healthcare providers to be able to respond to any situation they might find themselves in is crucial to their development as healthcare professionals.

For more information about the Simulation Lab and to discuss whether simulation is the right platform for your next training event, please contact Erin Vigil at (307) 996-4515 or click here to send her an email.

Benefits of simulation training

Simulation training creates a safe learning environment both technically and interpersonally. Making mistakes can be a valuable part of the learning process, and in the simulation environment, patients and staff are not put at risk.

Additionally, the Cheyenne Regional simulation lab can provide adult, pediatric and infant simulation experiences.

What to consider when scheduling a simulation

  • Space is determined and prioritized based on simulation needs as well as submission request dates.
  • The lab consists of two spaces: a debriefing room and a simulation lab. Spaces will not be separate unless specified in request.
  • All simulations will require planning meetings and a simulation run-through prior to the live simulation.
  • The time frame required for planning is determined by the type of simulation, manikin availability and the complexity of programming.

    • The average time frame for preparation is two months.
    • For scheduling purposes, please provide as much time as possible prior to the simulation date.
  • If equipment is not available, the requesting department is responsible for providing required equipment.
  • The simulation lab is not responsible for the transportation of equipment between buildings.
  • The simulation lab can provide in/situ simulations or reserve the simulation lab requested education.
