Simulation in Motion-Iowa (SIM-IA) is a unique program designed to provide simulated clinical learning opportunities in local communities across Iowa. 

Our rural emergency medical responders and rural hospitals face many obstacles, including costs, travel distance, and time off to getting critical education. Soon the education will come to them in their communities.
-Walter Panzirer, Trustee, Helmsley Charitable Trust

With three mobile simulation trucks, state-of-the-art equipment, and highly-trained staff, SIM-IA will bring much needed continuing education to EMS and other emergency providers throughout the state.
