Mobile Healthcare Simulation units are outreach education vehicles that have the ability to provide interprofessional simulation-based healthcare education to professionals in response to the need for interactive and high-tech training resources in urban, suburban, and rural areas. They are used to educate, train and test first responders, ER nurses, physicians and other healthcare professionals in mastering cognitive, technical, and behavioral skill sets prior to working in real world scenarios. Mobile sim labs are used to train individuals and teams in realistic clinical challenges through the use of task trainers, mannequins, virtual reality, standardized patients, in-situ approaches, and other hybrid forms. Medical simulation is sometimes referred to as nursing, healthcare, patient, clinical, or surgical simulation.

Medical simulation training uses advanced educational technology for training healthcare professionals in an experiential learning environment. This is how healthcare professionals receive initial and ongoing training that they need to learn current procedures and lifesaving techniques using a high-fidelity patient “manikin” (or “mannequin” or ““patient simulator”) and other advanced technology equipment.
