Press release from: Education Management Solutions, Inc.

Learners at Madison College will master clinical skills in a safe learning environment

Exton, Pa. (September 11, 2013) Today Madison Area Technical College’s Health Simulation Center opens its doors to big opportunities. Madison Area Technical College’s District Board, college president Dr. Jack Daniels III, administration, faculty, staff, local and state politicians, key internal and external stakeholders, and members of the community will be in attendance at the ribbon cutting to commemorate the new School of Education building. . The event celebrates the college's commitment to students, student success, and state-of-the-art educational space for enhanced learning.

According to Jeffrey Wenzel, Simulation Instruction Coordinator at Madison Area Technical College’s Health Simulation Center, the goal is simple: “[We want to] improve clinical outcomes and patient safety, uniting the classroom with simulation to improve the students’ education coursework in a safe and collaborative environment.”

The Health Simulation Center has six rooms, including two trauma rooms, one OB/infant intensive care room, one apartment, and two general patient rooms.

What’s different about this center? Wenzel believes that it’s more than just simulation rooms, but a true “working hospital.” As students enter the Center, their simulated patients may be located in different areas and across multiple disciplines.

Wenzel appreciates the helpful reporting tools Education Management Solutions’ (EMS) system offers which will aid in the growth of the center and result in improved clinical outcomes. With the EMS solution, faculty will be able to create portfolios for students to monitor their progress through graduation. “Faculty can access recorded simulations on or off campus, so watching and grading can fit into their schedule,” says Wenzel.

Dr. Antonio Re, Associate Dean, School of Health Education concludes, “Health professions continue to grow and will be strong drivers of the economy for many years to come. The demand for health workers will increase and, by default, many students will seek to enter healthcare professions via community and technical colleges.” Madison Area Technical College sets an exciting example of this claim, and faculty are already gearing up for an “increase in enrollment in the new building because there is room to grow both physically and virtually thanks, in part, to the investment in technology and infrastructure.”
