OB Simulation Program

Stanford's OB Simulation Program provides labor and delivery teams with a safe way to practice emergency situations. The OB Sim staff creates realistic scenarios designed to teach obstetric teams the technical, behavioral and communication skills necessary for optimal performance when faced with a real life emergency situation.
