The Future of Medicine

 

Simulation, education, and surgical innovation are essential elements of medical training. Our state-of-the-art facilities foster hands-on learning environments and access to advancements in medicine. We partner with various programs for continuing medical education throughout the duration of a professional’s career, from the classroom to the operating room. 

Simulation and Education

Center

Southfield

Opened in July of 2017, the Simulation and Education Center at Ascension Providence Hospital, Southfield Campus is an approximately 7,400 square foot facility accredited by the American College of Surgeons. The Center’s resources include several high-fidelity manikins, multiple virtual reality trainers, and over twenty skills-training models. These educational tools are housed in a space containing a functional OR, two multipurpose team training rooms, two clinical exam rooms, a large skills lab, an anatomy lab, and a space dedicated to virtual skills training. Additionally, the Center includes a classroom that can seat up to forty students and three smaller conference rooms that are available for debriefing simulations and web conferencing.

Van Elslander Surgical Innovation Center

Novi

The Van Elslander Surgical Innovation Center (VESIC) is now under the management of Ascension-Providence Hospital and is accessible as part of Medical Education for surgical skills training. The VESIC was formed through a partnership between the Hospital and Drs. Bojrab, LaRouere, and Babu of the Michigan Ear Institute. The VESIC Skills Laboratory was designed with a proctor station that allows experts to demonstrate surgical techniques and introduce new devices for use in cadaveric tissue, which cultivates a true teaching environment for residents and practicing physicians. Exceeding 9,000 square feet, the expansive facility is located in the Outpatient Building of the Novi Campus and has attracted medical experts from across the country.
