STRATUS Center: Test Drive Your Surgical Skills

July 28, 2017

The STRATUS Center at Brigham and Women's Hospital brings hands-on learning to a whole new level, putting students in the driver's seat as they hone their surgical skills and respond to medical emergencies in lifelike simulations. 

EXPLO Emergency Medicine students practice treating "patients" — mannequins with a computer-controlled pulse, blood pressure, heart tones — to get a true taste of what it is like to assess a patient. With the STRATUS Center's state-of-the-art technology and instructors at their fingertips, students practice the proper procedures for inserting an IV, intubating, administering CPR, and splinting.
