The Pediatric Simulation Center at Children’s of Alabama was established in 2007 to provide physicians, nurses, respiratory therapists, pharmacists, students and other health care professionals with opportunities to perform common medical procedures and respond to rare, complex conditions and life threatening emergencies.
With the help of our supporters, the Center continues to grow and has nine simulators ranging in age from newborn to teen. Three of the simulators are wireless and can be used off-site.

We hold a basic assumption for every learner that visits our center:
