Geisinger Education & Medical Simulation (GEMS) Center

The Geisinger Education and Medical Simulation (GEMS) Center, was designed to provide a comprehensive program of clinical skills education and assessment. This includes such things as standardized patients and confederates, task trainers, high-fidelity simulations, web-based modules and workshops for medical students, residents, attending physicians, advanced practitioners, nurses, respiratory therapists and other members of the healthcare team. 

The GEMS Center promotes clinical skills activities that support and enhance interprofessional and interdisciplinary teamwork, educational accreditation, maintenance of certification and patient safety and quality of care initiatives. These initiatives integrate simulation to effectively train and objectively assess applied knowledge, adequacy of skills and level of competence. 

Clinical simulation is a remarkable resource that can be utilized by any department or specialty throughout the system. Feel free to contact us to discuss how we can meet your educational needs.
