What Do Healthcare Professionals Say About Our Simulators?

Filter By Simulator

George Eapen, MD, FACP, FCCP

“Using the BRONCH Mentor and the BRONCH Express in our facility has enabled our trainees to rapidly acquire and adopt safe and efficient bronchoscopy habits. The use of the simulation software facilitates a deeper understanding of anatomic relationships in a low stakes environment that is very conducive to learning. With comprehensive hands-on training using a graduated curriculum, deliberate practice and objective performance metrics, the path to proficiency is a carefully monitored one, and our patients have to carry less of the burden of the procedural learning curve.“

“At Loyola University of Chicago Stritch School of Medicine’s Advanced Procedure Education Lab we have a state-of-the-art Surgical Science GI –BRONCH Mentor trainer. It’s an invaluable tool for resident and fellowship training offering 24-hour access to life-like simulation that helps immensely with patient safety and care.”

“We are pleased to partner with Surgical Science to deliver a standardized interventional pulmonology curriculum, allowing individual programs to offer training that’s been validated through CHEST’s hands-on simulation programs. This partnership is a strong example of CHEST’s commitment to providing essential education and resources at critical times for the chest medicine community.”

I had the opportunity to train on the BRONCH Express simulator and proctor our first year fellows. The system is extremely easy to use and well designed. The step-by-step learning approach of the simulator allows for assessment of the initial level of fellows. The EBUS module is really well-designed, and offers about the same experience as would real patient cases. The objective feedback, including attempted needle passes, correct/incorrect maneuvers and the number of obtained samples, helps with competence assessment. Each fellow can repeat the well-structured case scenarios as many times as needed to gain enough confidence and proficiency before passing to real patients.
