MedStar Simulation Training & Education Lab (SiTEL) designs and delivers online education, experiential learning and performance support tools for all roles across the MedStar Health system.
Our core areas of expertise:
Clinical Simulation Services operates simulation centers in Washington and Baltimore and a mobile simulation lab. We also provide in situ simulation services throughout the system, and operate a large American Health Association certification program in Pediatric Advanced Life Support, Advanced Cardio Life Support and Basic Life Support training.
Learning Research & Design creates original learning content using a blend of video production, graphic arts and animation, serious game development and instructional design.
Learning Technologies develops and maintains systems and tools that power learning at MedStar.
Clinical Education is composed of clinical educators who contribute domain expertise to MedStar SiTEL education content.
Outreach Services connects faculty, nurse educators, administrators and other key educational stakeholders to MedStar SiTEL resources.
