Due to COVID-19, CRH will continue working remotely until further notice.
Area Health Education Center Program Human Patient Simulation Program
The North Dakota Area Health Education Center (AHEC) will work in collaboration with K-16 programs and with
healthcare facilities to increase the availability of patient simulation opportunities.
The North Dakota AHEC Human Patient Simulation program assists by providing access to high-fidelity simulation
equipment to rural North Dakota. The North Dakota AHEC will work in collaboration with K-16 programs and with
healthcare facilities to increase the availability of patient simulation opportunities. The North Dakota AHEC
has purchased six simulation units including an adult patient simulator (SimMan 3G), a birthing simulator
(Noelle), two pediatric simulators (PediaSIM and MegaCode Kid), an advanced cardiac life support simulator, and
a baby simulator (SimBaby). As a collaborative partner in the North Dakota Simulation Alliance (Alliance
partners include the UND School of Medicine & Health Sciences ND STAR simulation center and the UND College of
Nursing Human Patient Simulator Center), the North Dakota AHEC Human Patient Simulation Program will provide
interdisciplinary continuing education courses on-site to rural critical access hospitals across the three
regional North Dakota AHEC centers.
What We Do
Increase access to human patient simulation to rural areas within the three AHEC regions.
Work collaboratively with the North Dakota Simulation Alliance to establish interdisciplinary regional
Work with ND Simulation Alliance to provide on-site simulation training to critical access hospitals, rural
clinics and emergency medical services (EMS) teams.
