Clinical Training at STRATUS

Whether you are a clinician with years of experience or a trainee just learning your craft, you may visit STRATUS to develop and enhance your skills through reality-based patient care presentations in a wide range of simulated environments. Case-based simulation scenarios are applicable to medical, surgical, and nursing disciplines, as well as allied health professionals such as EMS, respiratory therapy, pathology, psychiatry and others. Whatever purpose brings you to STRATUS, you will leave more competent and confident as a clinician, and better prepared to perform wherever and whenever experience counts. 

We can help you:

  • Review and perfect techniques and procedures – even if you’ve done them many times
  • Familiarize yourself with new technologies
  • Enhance your decision-making capabilities
  • Learn leadership and teamwork skills
  • Learn specific content as part of our medical education programs
  • Accelerate your process improvement efforts (recreate sentinel events, observe existing processes, and test new processes)

We provide:

  • Customized evaluation sessions to fit the subject’s specific assessment needs
  • Assistance in developing assessment tools as well as practice areas, and opportunities for remediation

Master clinicians amass knowledge, use that knowledge effectively to make appropriate clinical decisions, possess the psychomotor skills to implement those decisions, and champion the collaborative teamwork skills that ensure the patient receives the best possible care. STRATUS training improves skills in all of these areas without ever putting patients at risk.

No matter what your simulation training goals may be, we have the faculty, facilities, and expertise to develop a program to meet your needs. Our educational specialists will work with you to define your objectives, develop a curriculum, establish simulation scenarios, create skills-based programs, and provide metrics and assessment tools to measure educational progress.
