Open source vet simulation center

February 8, 2013

Dental students have robotic simulators, med students and surgeons have theirs too, and now Cornell University’s College of Veterinary Medicine has one. They have a simulation center with two fully equipped exam rooms, two rooms for live video-feed observation and debriefing, and two robotic pets – a dog and a cat.
Dr. Dan Fletcher says, “Through the use of these new facilities we can enhance CPR scenarios and can simulate a slew of other conditions.”
Using open source hardware and software, Fletcher and his team developed their system and share it with other universities and veterinary centers.
