New partnership to bring simulation training to Iowa's rural providers

A new $8 million grant from the Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust will help the University of Iowa educate health care providers and first responders in rural parts of the state on procedures they don’t often have the opportunity to perform.

Simulation exercise 

The Simulation in Motion-Iowa (SIM-IA) program will provide valuable hands-on experience for health care professionals using a truckful of state-of-the art equipment and patient simulators.

“Thankfully, crisis situations do not happen often in most communities, but when they do, rapid responses and skilled, experienced professionals are needed,” says Cormac O’Sullivan, a clinical associate professor of nursing and director of the college’s anesthesia program who will co-direct SIM-IA.
