Chicago, IL (January 15, 2016) – Driven by increasing demand for clinical simulation centers by health-related businesses, Kaplan Medical will be opening its once-private Clinical Skills facility in the downtown Chicago Loop to help companies, such as research, product development, medical device and pharmaceutical firms, that require medical professional training in a simulated physician office setting. One of only a few commercial simulation centers in the Midwest, the Kaplan Medical Chicago Center for Medical Simulation is now available for rental, based on availability.

“Kaplan Medical has spent nearly 13 years bringing our best-in-class Clinical Skills preparation to medical students from all over the world – and we look forward to continuing to serve these students at our three Simulation Centers nationwide,” said Daniel Nelson, Executive Director, National Sales, Kaplan Medical. “Additionally, recent changes to our Clinical Skills program enable us to also serve our valued Medical community with their clinical skills simulation needs.”

The Kaplan Medical Chicago Center for Medical Simulation is fully separated from the Kaplan Medical test prep facility. Some of the Center’s features include:

  • 12 state-of-the-art simulated patient rooms with audio and video recording capability – each including all necessary tools for a standard office visit
  • Master faculty viewing room allowing trainers to view all 12 rooms concurrently
  • Computers outside of each patient room that allow for trainee feedback immediately  after each training session
  • Additional classrooms for larger group training and pre-and-post simulation
  • A full simulated physician’s office including waiting area

The Center also partners with a large number of Standardized Patients within the Chicago area who have been trained in multiple patient scenarios, if Standardized Patients are needed to simulate health symptoms.
