Simulation Curriculum

The MOCA simulation volunteers at MCW offer a robust training experience for medical students, interns, residents, fellows, faculty, and interdisciplinary teams.
In the simulation center or in situ, using high and low fidelity or part task trainers, audiovisual recordings, and standardized patients, you'll have access to a wide range of different training situations.
