Surgical Simulation Lab
The Multi-Disciplinary Surgical Simulation Lab on the tenth floor of McMillan Hospital at Washington University School of Medicine provides a state-of-the-art simulation space that enables residents to have hands-on technical skills through cadaveric dissections and surgical simulation devices.
The facility is jointly supported by the departments of neurosurgery, otolaryngology, and ophthalmology and features the cutting-edge equipment and audiovisual resources to enhance the surgical training of residents, students, fellows, and other healthcare professionals in these related fields. The lab consists of fourteen workstations, each outfitted with independent surgical microscopes, endoscopes, drills, suction, irrigation, ventilation, and drainage. High definition cameras are integrated into the microscopes and allow still image and video recordings of surgical and endoscopic procedures both in real-time and for archival reviews.
