Education & Research Programs


CESI - Center for Education, Simulation, Innovation

Hartford Hospital was home to Connecticut’s first “simulation center” which has grown into CESI, the centerpiece of Hartford Hospital’s pioneering vision to revamp the medical educational system. CESI is a regional and national training destination. As the second largest surgical center in New England and the Northeast’s largest robotic surgery center, Hartford Hospital continues to be a hub for medical training. CESI features exact replicas of an operating room, intensive care unit, delivery room and trauma room. It has the same equipment as the hospital, including two da Vinci robots and two robotic simulators designed especially for training purposes. Learn more about CESI
