Harvey The Cardiopulmonary Patient Simulator

Cardiopulmonary Training that
Improves Patient Care

For over 50 years, Harvey has been a proven simulation system to teach bedside cardiac assessment skills that transfer to real patients. Today, healthcare trainees and providers treat an increasingly diverse patient population. Simulation training can help them practice and develop the essential skills needed to foster equitable care that leads to better patient outcomes.

To promote diversity and inclusivity in health professions education, Harvey, the Cardiopulmonary Patient Simulator, is available in multiple skin tones to reflect different ethnic and racial patient backgrounds. Join more than 50 countries worldwide using Harvey to train the next generation of healthcare providers. ​


Advanced Cardiology Training

Next Generation Harvey® is capable of simulating a wide range of cardiac diseases and features 50 different patient scenarios and 10 standardized patient cases for teaching and assessment. Each patient scenario covers history, bedside findings, laboratory data, diagnostic testing, and medical and surgical management. Harvey's curriculum, created by experts worldwide, starts with common, less complex conditions and advances to more rare, complex diseases.

Curriculum caters to the requirements of a diverse range of learners, including students, residents, physicians, physician assistants, nurses, and nurse practitioners, and supports various learning styles and settings, such as self-guided study, small group training, and faculty-led instruction.​

UMedic trains and assesses thousands of learners and practitioners in more than 50 countries. The complete UMedic package consists of a series of 20 patient-centered programs that can be used as a stand-alone training resource or linked to Harvey. Learners are guided by an instructor who provides explanations, feedback, and remediation, giving them the opportunity to encounter a wider range of scenarios than they would during their clinical hours in a hospital. This exposure better equips them for the challenges they'll face upon entering the workforce.​
