Medical Students with a Low Fidelity Simulator Mannequin

Low Fidelity: Not needing to be controlled or programmed externally for the learner to participate. Healthcare Simulation Dictionary Second Edition, 2020

Low Fidelity Simulator Overview

Low fidelity simulators can be considered a half-step between a full-body manakin simulator and a task trainer. They serve as cost-effective and easily accessible tools for learners to practice fundamental medical skills. These simulators are particularly useful for introductory training, allowing students to familiarize themselves with procedures, equipment, and basic techniques before moving on to more complex simulations.

Requesting a Low Fidelity Simulator

Low fidelity simulators are available to use at our facility during on-site simulation courses and procedural skills training. They can also be rented out by members of UCLA Health, UCLA DGSOM, or affiliated groups, pending approval by our staff. An Equipment Request form must be submitted for all equipment rentals.

Educators interested in reserving our low fidelity simulators may visit the Sim Request Portal and fill out the form with the necessary information about your planned session and the requested simulators.

Low fidelity simulators should be requested with as much notice as possible (at least 5 business days notice preferred) to ensure the availability of the equipment. Please allow us up to 5 business days to review and respond. We cannot guarantee that same day or short notice requests will be accommodated.
