Interesting and dynamic work environment
Simulation Technologist (Current Employee) – Zamierowski Institute of Experiential Learning – March 13, 2018
The simulation center is a cutting edge department that regularly engages in team-based innovation, especially in the tech team. The technicians and technologists are tasked with delivering simulation for learners from both the hospital and university side using high-fidelity manikins (pulses, blood pressure, breathing, heart rate, talking, and even OB c-sections and delivery) and integrating other hospital equipment for a realistic learner experience. The tech team schedule is dictated by the center schedule, so hours can be challenging and vary from 7am to 6pm but typically 40-45 hours per week. The team is a great group of people who regularly assist each other with tasks and problem-solving. The whole team has an all-hand-on-deck sort of feel. I have worked in a wide array of industries (agriculture, food manufacturing, construction equipment manufacturing) and this is the best group of people I have worked with.
Interesting work, comp time for overtime, occasional catered lunches, beautiful facilities
Hours are not consistent (always 40+), parking and transportation on campus is a challenge
