About Us

Created by clinicians for clinicians

SimKit Model

SimKit believes emergency medicine clinicians should not have to fight skill set decay on their own. Our integrated platform includes easy-to-use simulation models, step-by-step procedural videos, regional anesthesia instructional pages, and point-of-care infographics. You’ll find everything you need to get sharp and stay sharp.

As a community-based Emergency Medicine physician, I found my procedural competency was my own to manage – sink or swim. 

After a difficult case, I pledged to not leave my patient care and outcomes up to chance. I repeatedly reviewed my notes so I could quickly recognize the need for an emergency procedure and I found ways to practice key motor skills until I had complete muscle memory.

Then, I asked an important question: “shouldn’t all ED docs have this?” SimKit makes what I built for myself available to all, right at their doorstep.

Don’t fight procedural skill set decay on your own. SimKit will meet you where you’re at, and make your learning fast and easy so you can maintain your competence and confidence.
