NYSIM has purchased two Premature Anne task trainers and simulators from Laerdal. Premature Anne is a realistically proportioned 25-week preterm infant with features aligned with objectives of the American Academy of Pediatrics Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP). The task trainer is designed to aide learners in strengthen competence in airway management techniques, delivering compressions, vascular access (umbilicus), and practice IV placement. While the simulator helps place learners in realistic scenarios to enhance their ability to assess, diagnose, and treat preterm infants.

The C21 Science and Technology Entry Program (STEP) is part of a consortium sponsored by the New York State Department of Education and has existed in some form at NYU Langone for 28 years. It provides racially underrepresented and economically under-served high school students with direct exposure to careers in science and medicine. Sponsored by the Office of Diversity Affairs, the program gives students with demonstrat-ed interest and ability in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) careers and the licensed health professions an important step toward their professional goals.
While at NYSIM these students participated in a simulation on a hypothetical patient. That same week, the students watched faculty at NYU Langone’s Neuroscience Institute dissect a sheep’s brain in order to get a glimpse into both science and surgery. They also became officially certified in CPR, a skill they can now take with them wherever they go, and which gives them hands-on experience—literally—in the health sciences.
