Health Simulation Center

Health Education Building

Welcome to the Madison Area Technical College's Health Simulation Center (HSC). Through program and multidisciplinary learning experiences we are: redefining the standards in how we work, how we learn, and how we interact as professionals. 

Madison College gives healthcare providers a new perspective on how to handle real medical situations in a safe, simulated environment. Through high-fidelity scenarios that simulate genuine crisis management situations, the Health Simulation Center at Madison College can open new chapters in the level of healthcare quality that participants provide. 

Our Focus: communication, collaboration, and patient care management in order to develop skills and teamwork behaviors that are best learned actively under realistic conditions. 

The HSC opened in August 2013 and is shared among the Madison College's EMS, Nursing, Respiratory Therapist, Physical Therapist Assistant, Occupational Therapy Assistant, Surgical Technologist, Medical Assistant, Optometric, Dental and Radiography programs. The School of Health Education and the School of Human and Protective Services are working to ensure Madison and the surrounding counties have a highly trained healthcare workforce to meet the state's current and future needs.

Mission Statement: to improve clinical outcomes and patient safety by uniting didactic and clinical methodologies into the student's education coursework. Faculty allows learners to apply critical knowledge and practice skills in a supportive and controlled setting. We are dedicated to the community served by Madison College graduates, post-graduates and also non-Madison College graduates.

Vision Statement: Madison College's Health Simulation Center will be the leader in simulation education, by providing a state-of-the-art simulation center for our students. We focus on a collaborative approach to the care of the patient involving the schools' of Human and protective Services and Health Education, through a "real world" experience. 

The Simulation Experience: a real-life environment for learning, through use of advanced patient simulators in realistic settings such as: intensive care units, trauma and operating rooms, and general care areas. This area allows instructors, students and clinicians the opportunity to be immersed in a patient care scenario maintaining a safe environment.
