Preparedness Simulation

Penn State Hershey Department of Emergency Medicine offers training programs to better prepare regional healthcare providers to respond to public health emergencies. In collaboration with Crisis Simulations International, Penn State’s Emergency Preparedness Training provides real-time computer-based simulations for the following scenarios:

  • Pandemic flu affecting a local hospital and community
  • Mass casualty incident involving a terrorist bombing in a public arena
  • Large-scale hospital evacuation including multiple floors and patient populations

Students actively participate in a flat-screen computer-based simulations that creates a realistic approach to preparing for these disasters through cascading decision-based scenarios. Facilitated debriefing sessions allow for group discussions and preparedness planning.  To learn more, click here.
