Resembling an ambulance, the mobile laboratory allows PCOM Georgia students to learn
how pre-hospital care operates.
A drive down Interstate 75 was the maiden voyage for PCOM Georgia’s Mobile Medical
Simulation Lab which was recently outfitted as a training vehicle for healthcare students.
The ambulance was en route to the August 6, 2019, ribbon-cutting ceremony and open house at PCOM South Georgia in Moultrie and illustrates the close relationship between the two PCOM campuses
The mobile lab, which looks like an ambulance minus the sirens, is a teaching tool
for students seeking Medical Simulation certification. In addition, emergency simulations can be run inside the unit for
both PCOM students and for training sessions that occur with paramedics, EMTS, hospitals
and other institutions.
“This unit adds a whole new perspective to our simulation program,” said Jeff Adams, NREMT-P, BA, MS, Director of Medical Simulation for PCOM Georgia.
“We can incorporate pre-hospital care into the in-hospital care that we run in our
Simulation Center. This allows the students to get an appreciation for what happens
outside the hospital before the patients show up in the ER,” he said.
