About Us


Our Mission

SIMS Medical Center at Springfield Technical Community College is a nationally recognized patient simulation facility with an experienced faculty and staff dedicated to the exploration of patient simulation with the goal of improved patient care.

Our Vision

SIMS Medical Center was created to provide a state of the art educational environment where students and healthcare personnel obtain new skills and refine existing competencies. We believe that the patient simulation environment allows students to develop teamwork, communication, problem solving, critical thinking, and patient care skills.


SIMS Medical Center uses patient simulation to bridge the gap between education and clinical practice. In order to do that, we create an interdisciplinary environment that provides realistic hands-on clinical experiences with the expectation that patient care will be improved. 

An emphasis on interdisciplinary scenarios closely replicates the medical workforce environment of today.
