Ribbon Cut On MPTC Beaver Dam Campus’ New Interdisciplinary Simulation Center

(Beaver Dam) A ribbon cutting ceremony was recently held for Moraine Park Technical College – Beaver Dam Campus’ new Interdisciplinary Simulation Center. The space is a hands-on training lab health services for programs such as nursing, paramedic, and EMT. Dean of Health and Human Services Barb Jascor says their health area was designed to look just like a hospital wing, each room equipped with a different human patient simulator. She says they also have a replica ambulance and mock apartment to aid their EMT and paramedic program. Jascor says these labs provide the opportunity for students to experience scenarios as close to real-life as possible while in the safety of a college classroom environment. In celebration of this new space, the Beaver Dam Chamber of Commerce hosted a ribbon cutting as an official welcome to the Beaver Dam community and to bring awareness of the technology and resources students have to train in these healthcare fields.
