Wish List for the Clinical Simulation Center

Materials, Models, and Equipment

Models:
Canine (spay) simulator

Canine Abdominal Models

Purpose: Allow students to practice abdominal surgery.

Manufacturer: Vet Simulators

Donation request: $2500


Ultrasound Models

Purpose: Practice ultrasonography skills.

Manufactuer: http://www.sonositeeducation.com/uk/blue_phantom.htm

Donation request: $500-750


Duplicate models of popular and in-demand female urinary catheter, intubation, and IV catheter models

Purpose: Some of these models are so in demand that we have conflicts in schedule over their use. They will also have predictable wear and tear and will need replaced given their high volume of use.

Donation request: $3,000-5,000


Haptic Simulators

Haptic Veterinary Simulators: Cow and horse colic system

Purpose: Realistic rectal palpation models allow for safer (for student and animal) training of basic rectal palpation pregnancy diagnosis and gastrointestinal abnormalities. Learning outcomes have been documented to occur more reliably with this type of training and implementing their use strategically will optimize the use of teaching animals.

Manufactuer: Virtalis

Donation request: $90,000


Simulators:

Ventriloscope

Purpose: A stethoscope that can play specific sounds for use in simulation (heart, lung, and gastrointestinal sounds)

Donation request: $10,000


Minimally invasive task trainers:
laparoscopic_box trainer

Laparoscopic trainer

Purpose: Provide opportunity for learners to develop their non-invasive surgical skills, which require a steep learning curve, prior to performing on live animals.

Manufacturers: http://www.carolinashealthcare.org/laparascopic-box-trainers-simulation-equipment or http://simulab.com/products/laparoscopic-trainers

Donation request: $1500-3000


Material and instrumentation:
students in surgery

High quality surgical instruments

Purpose: Expand and enhance the surgical instrumentation that trainees have available to use in the simulation center.

Donation request: $200-500


Taxidermy materials

Purpose: To create models not commercially available but that are indicated for veterinary medicine.

Donation request: $400-800


Program Development and Personnel Support

surgical skills development

Simulation case development

Each case takes approximately 40 hours to create. With limited time and personnel resources this becomes a challenge and a rate limiting step in the advancement of the program.

Donation request: $750-900


Student club simulation efforts

Student clubs often want to have simulation as their club events. With external support more simulation would be possible for targets audiences.

Donation request: $750-900


Pilot projects for course and rotations

Simulation has a steep learning curve, both in case development and in implementation. To grow the program and support the college’s education mission, we need funding to develop cases that align with student classes and medical rotations, while supporting faculty who are at the same time developing their simulation skill set.

Donation request: $600-800


Student practicing surgical skills

Sponsoring a peer teaching assistant

As core component of our optional clinical skills laboratory, students are trained in teaching methods and clinical skills to provide loss-stress instruction for their peers.

Donation request: $1500 per teaching assistant per semester


Research project support

To optimize the use of simulation in veterinary medicine, we need to pursue vigorous research in this area. Currently there are no specific sources of funding for pilot projects in this type of work.

Donation request: $2500-5000


Promotional and educational video production

To capitalize on some of the independent training opportunities, we need to provide students with a larger library of well-constructed instructional videos.

Donation request: $3,000-6,000
