The Richard King Mellon Foundation has given West Penn Allegheny Health System's Simulation Teaching and Academic Research Center a $350,000 grant to expand its educational programs in surgical simulation and emergency medical services.
Medical students at the center use simulation to practice clinical skills in a risk-free environment prior to performance on real patients.
The grant will be used to develop a simulated surgical center/ operating room and to provide simulation training for emergency medical service providers, the health system said.
