Simulations help students to be better prepared, while saving costs and increasing value from lab time

SIMTICS simulations enabled over 350 schools to rapidly transition to online instruction in 2020

 

Better skills performance, more feedback and lower cost

Skills Development  Much of in person lab time is spent waiting for a turn and passively watching someone else.   Students get more practice than they would with an in-person lab. On-demand repetition also helps students build skills quickly and retain knowledge longer.
Cost High cost structure for lab space, equipment, consumables, staff and maintenance.   More cost-effective than in-person labs. Save money through less wear and tear on equipment and lower consumables usage.
Ease of Access In-person lab time is limited and caps student practice time.   Easily accessible - literally anytime and anywhere, as often as needed.
Real Time Feedback Instructors have limited bandwidth to provide real time feedback for every student. Feedback is primarily subjective.   Objective, real time formative feedback while learning. Plus detailed, summative performance feedback for both students and faculty.
Confidence Students often suffer from performance anxiety when performing a procedure for the first time in a lab or clinical setting.   Students who work with SIMTICS simulations have much higher confidence levels when they actually have to complete a new procedure in a lab or clinical setting.

 

Learn by doing. It's the smarter way.

Learn Short

Learn by doing

Simulation engages the brain, making it a powerful way to learn, practice and perfect cognitive clinical skills.

Practice Short

Practice and improve

Web-based, so learners can practice as often as they want and track progress while they learn, to ensure they reach competence.

Self-testing

Students can test their skills in the test-mode simulations and be perfectly prepared for labs & externships.

 

Testimonials

  • Tracy Hagen
    Central Piedmont Community College
    I appreciate the excellent customer service that you all are providing, and our students are really enjoying SIMTICS!
  • Joel Nelson
    VP of Academic Operations, Charter College
    The transition to using SIMTICS went better than even my best case guess. The training provided to faculty and integration with our LMS (Canvas) were top notch. Students took to the simulations right away, finding them informative as well as engaging. During face to face lab time, the students are well prepared to practice the skills learned via SIMTICS in a clinical setting. We are impressed with the product.
  • Shelly Holt
    MA Program Director, Chattahoochee Valley Community College
    In lab, some students quite unsure of themselves but they may not voice those feelings. And when you have only one instructor, if they can’t practice the procedures first, it takes a lot more one-on-one time with them. Often I had to stay back or open the lab up again. SIMTICS has cut down on that. Students are prepared and arrive with knowledge from using the simulations. And after the lab is over, they still have access. They can go back to SIMTICS and refresh their skills, especially when it’s time to go to preceptorship. My students absolutely love it.
  • Dr. Eric Goldsmith
    Assistant Dean for Clinical Affairs, College of Osteopathic Medicine, NSU
    The students get to learn about a procedure and practice it virtually before they do the hands-on time. They can build on that knowledge in the hands-on session. Importantly, faculty are able to track what the students are doing, whether they've completed each assignment or not, and whether they've achieved a level of competence.
  • Dr. Noel Alonso
    Co-Course Director, Physical Diagnosis, College of Osteopathic Medicine, NSU
    Using SIMTICS in conjunction with a lab or simulation center makes things much more efficient, much more streamlined. Students are able to better invest their hands-on time in discussion of cases, and application of the procedures. They can hone and perfect those skills in the lab, as opposed to us having to start from scratch with them and losing valuable face-to-face time doing that.
  • Michael Schafer
    Higher Education professional and past ABHES commissioner
    SIMTICS is on the forefront of the emerging technologies that use simulation to synthesize clinical practice with cognitive knowledge. Simulation is the future, especially in allied health education, and is an excellent way to demonstrate outcomes to programmatic and institutional accreditors.
