Your Partner in Education and Training


The Minimally Invasive Training Center (MITC) at Good Samaritan Hospital wants to be your partner in education and training. We are devoted to providing you with essential, hands-on, expert instruction to continue your education. Whether you choose to use one of our established courses or, customize your own course to fit your team’s needs, our aim is to assist in the development of your team’s skill set. The use of detailed presentations, simulations, live models, and cadaver labs provides the opportunity for consistent, impactful teaching and learning experiences.

Why Partner With Us?

We recognize there is a need for providers of varying levels to be trained on common procedures and situations. Expert proceduralists are not always available and we realize there is a shortage. Patient outcomes are determined by the quality of care provided by our staffs and it is vital our staffs feel confident in their abilities to administer care when needed. Our staff is committed to helping you develop a custom or using a pre-existing course to increase knowledge and foster an increase in confidence as well. We all have the same mission and we are helping through effective, impactful, and data driven educational programs customized to fit your needs. Partner with us, we’re here to help.

Data Driven Outcomes

Our goal is to help stimulate the professional growth and excellence of health care providers while bettering patient outcomes. As trainings are conducted we collect data on each individual throughout the course. All the data is compiled to provide each group with individualized and group reports to reflect the improvements related to the various scenarios and techniques outlined in the curriculum. Our trainings are designed with the end result in mind – higher quality, more confidence, and better patient outcomes.

Are you interested in one of our training programs or, in designing your own? Feel free to contact us. We can discuss what you have in mind and also organize a tour of the MITC to show you our capabilities.
