Advancing medical education through our partnership with Stanford University

Last week marked the 5th session of our collaborative simulation-based emergency training program with Stanford University. This initiative has enabled our medical students and residents to receive exceptional training from distinguished Prof. B. Dannenberg – Emeritus Professor of the Emergency Medicine Department at Stanford University – and his team that came all the way from Stanford to Hunimed.

Residents from the anesthesia department and our 6th-year Honors Track medical students engaged in a comprehensive program encompassing skill stations, workshops, and pediatric clinical cases in our simulation center. Under the guidance of international experts, they gained practical experience and enhanced their pediatric clinical skills.

“Our goal is to equip residents and students at Humanitas University with essential emergency preparedness for everyday scenarios, using simulation to transfer our knowledge in the most realistic way. The HU Simulation Center, equipped with modern facilities, serves as an ideal training ground,” explains Prof. B. Dannenberg.

Through this partnership initiated three years ago, we have been able to provide students with invaluable simulation-based training, preparing them for real-world medical challenges.

“This collaboration signifies a significant milestone in our efforts to enhance medical education on a global scale. By leveraging the expertise of international professionals, we are enriching the quality of training our students receive,” adds Dr. Ebm – Scientific Coordinator at Humanitas University.

We eagerly anticipate the ongoing success of this collaboration, envisioning not only the continued enhancement of medical education but also the significant strides that will be made through the power of international cooperation. By fostering strong global partnerships, we aim to advance medical knowledge, improve clinical practices, and ultimately elevate the standard of patient care worldwide.


Humanitas is a highly specialized Hospital, Research and Teaching Center. Built around centers for the prevention and treatment of cancer, cardiovascular, neurological and orthopedic disease – together with an Ophthalmic Center and a Fertility Center – Humanitas also operates a highly specialised Emergency Department.
