Medical Simulation Corporation (MSC) announces the opening of a SimSuite center in Germany. MSC has entered into an agreement with CardioSkills Company, headquartered in Frankfurt, Germany.

Training experiences range from basic to complex procedures.

"MSC and CardioSkills -- that's professionalism meeting professionalism and the result is a new definition of quality and a new standard in medical education and simulation," said Dr. Erhard Kaiser, Founder of CardioSkills.

"Our objective in Europe is to serve the medical community with superior training and to partner with societies in studies of simulation while maintaining the integrity of our education approach," said Bill Younkes, MSC Chief Executive Officer and President. "Our partnership with CardioSkills represents a significant milestone in MSC's global expansion efforts."

MSC's mobile distribution capability includes the onsite presence of the simulation system, courseware and clinical specialist support. Societies, manufacturers, hospitals and provider teams experience a high-quality training event. Unlike other simulation training programs, there is no need to purchase expensive equipment that quickly becomes obsolete, develop courseware or have trainers on staff.
