Breakthrough Benefits for Students and Patients

NYSIM, a partnership of The City University of New York (CUNY) and NYU Langone Medical Center, is one of the nation’s newest, largest and most sophisticated urban health science simulation teaching facilities.

Since its opening in September, 2011, NYSIM has had more than 50,000 learner visits and delivered nearly 2,000 simulation courses for NYU and CUNY medical, nursing and dental students, residents, staff physicians and nurses, physician assistants, respiratory therapists as well as those in other health care fields.  NYSIM offers training to first responders in the New York area, including firefighters and emergency medical service personnel.

NYSIM specializes in training for simulation instructors from NYU, CUNY and other healthcare institutions that would like to enhance their own simulation programs.

Life-Saving Techniques

Through simulated exercises with lifelike computerized mannequins, learners acquire new skills and brush up on the latest life-saving techniques for a range of medical emergencies including cardiac and respiratory arrests, neonatal complications, strokes, and injuries from natural and man-made disasters.

NYSIM is located in a 25,000 square foot wing of Bellevue Hospital in Manhattan.
