Alice Hyde to Host Simulation Lab Open House on Feb. 15

The University of Vermont Health Network – Alice Hyde Medical Center is hosting an Open House highlighting its recently-opened Clinical Simulation Lab from 4 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, February 15.

The event will feature the hospital’s three new advanced clinical training mannequins, which were purchased with the generosity of our donors. The mannequins — one adult, one pregnant adult and one infant/newborn — are leading-edge technology and capable of simulating a wide variety of routine and emergent clinical events, from heart attacks and strokes to pre-, perinatal and neonatal medical issues and emergencies.

The event is free and open to the public. Simulations will be run every 30 minutes, and guests will have the opportunity to tour the simulation lab and interact with the mannequins, which can speak, sweat and perform other lifelike actions.

Visitors should enter through the hospital’s Main Entrance and proceed to the Third Floor Training Unit via Elevator Bank B. Signage will be posted on the day of the event. Masks are required for the duration of guests’ visit to the hospital.
