Experience RECOVER CPR through Immersive Simulation
Intensive workshop in simulation learning focused on CPR training
The Veterinary Simulation Deep Dive: RECOVER CPR is a two day simulation learning workshop held at the Tetlow and Roy Park Veterinary Innovation Lab. The workshop is targeted at veterinary educators (veterinarians and veterinary technicians/nurses) who want to teach the evidence-based RECOVER CPR guidelines using immersive simulation. Upon completion of the workshop, you will:
- Be certified as a RECOVER BLS/ALS Rescuer (or get a refresher)
- Be certified as a RECOVER BLS/ALS Instructor
- Have a foundation in medical simulation for veterinary education, including design of simulation scenarios, running simulations, and facilitating post-scenario debriefs
- Understand how to use OpenVetSim, an open-source platform for veterinary immersive simulation training
RECOVER CPR Certification is the first simulation-based training and certification process for veterinary CPR, and is the only veterinary CPR training program offering certification by the American College of Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care and endorsed by the Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Society.
OpenVetSim is an open source simulation platform created for veterinary educators to design and implement simulated clinical scenarios. OpenVetSim is the backbone of the canine simulator used for RECOVER CPR certification. But its capabilities go beyond CPR, and you’ll learn how to program the system for any type of clinical training.

Daniel Fletcher, PhD, DVM, DACVECC
Dr. Fletcher has been on the faculty of the Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine since 2006. After receiving a BS in Electrical Engineering from Drexel University and a PhD in Bioengineering from the University of California Berkeley/San Francisco, he obtained his DVM from the University of California at Davis. He then completed a rotating internship and emergency and critical care residency at the University of Pennsylvania. He has received multiple teaching awards, including the 2013 SUNY Chancellor’s Award for Teaching Excellence and is co-chair of the RECOVER Initiative, which published the first evidence-based veterinary CPR guidelines. His research interests include disorders of fibrinolysis, epilepsy, and the use of immersive simulation in teaching. He has been building simulators for veterinary education since 2009 and opened the Tetlow and Roy Park Innovation Lab, an immersive simulation center at Cornell in the fall of 2015.
Kenichiro Yagi, MS, RVT, VTS (ECC, SAIM)
Ken Yagi has been practicing in the veterinary field since 2000 obtaining his RVT in 2008 and certifying as a Veterinary Technician Specialist in Emergency and Critical Care in 2011 and Small Animal Internal Medicine in 2013. He has obtained his master’s degree in Veterinary Science through the University of Missouri in 2017. As an active educator and VTS he has contributed to the development of training methods and application of the RECOVER guideline in practice. He has been serving as the program director for the RECOVER Initiative since 2017, developing the certification process and international instructor network to establish an evidence-based standard for veterinary CPR worldwide. Ken is currently employed at the Tetlow and Roy Park Innovation Lab at Cornell as the Veterinary Education Simulation Laboratory Manager.
Ken invites everyone to ask “Why?” to understand the “What” and “How” of our field, and to constantly pursue new limits as veterinary professionals and individuals.

Hotel and Travel
Our local airport is the Ithaca Tompkins Regional Airport, located four miles from the Cornell campus, which has flights scheduled through American, Delta, and United. If you cannot arrange a flight into Ithaca, you will find that the Syracuse Hancock International Airport in Syracuse, New York, offers more options (including flights from two New York City-area airports: JF Kennedy on Delta or Jet Blue and Newark on United). Because the airport in Ithaca is a small regional airport, you may want to consider the Syracuse airport, which offers more flights and is less affected by winter weather issues. Ithaca is 60 miles/100 km (90-minute drive) from Syracuse. Ground transportation can be arranged through a local service, Ithaca Airline Limousine (phone: 1.607.273.3030 or 1.855.349.0084). Several scheduled trips are offered each day and you must call to make a reservation at least 24 hours, and up to 30 days, in advance. You may also arrange transportation to Ithaca through an area taxi service, Lyft, or Uber, or by driving a rental car.
The dates for this event coincides with Ithaca College’s Family Weekend and hotel rooms may sell out sooner than usual. Please take a look at some of the options below as a starting point.
Best Western University Inn offers rooms including breakfast, runs free shuttles to the workshop location and the airport.
There are other options for lodging the area through other hotels and avenues such as Airbnb.
