The Tulane Sim Center was also accredited by the American College of Surgeons as a Comprehensive ACS Accredited Education Institute. One of the goals of the accreditation program is to build a community of institutions interested in furthering surgical education. The aim of the accreditation program is to identify, develop and promote standards for quality education.



The Tulane Sim Center was first honored to join a group of 21 centers as a Laerdal Center of Educational Excellence. The program was established to recognize Centers that have exhibited consistent excellence in educational philosophy and programs for the purpose of "helping save lives". To identify Centers to which others can be referred as examples of the ways in which excellent educational programs are designed and implemented in the field of "helping save lives". To establish a network of Centers that can provide mutual support for 'breaking new ground' in the field of educational programs for "helping save lives".


Fundamentals of Laparoscopic Surgery. FLS is a comprehensive web-based education module that includes a hands-on skills training component and assessment tool designed to teach the physiology, fundamental knowledge, and technical skills required in basic laparoscopic surgery. FLS was designed for surgical residents, fellows and practicing physicians to learn and practice laparoscopic skills to have the opportunity to definitely measure and document those skills. The Tulane Sim Center is an official FLS regional testing center.
