Our Simulation Center

Our cutting-edge patient simulation center is designed to emulate the conditions health care professionals encounter in real settings. Each room contains a modern array of equipment utilized in different clinical scenarios. Healthcare professionals can practice and refine their skills with a diverse patient population without putting real patients at risk. Simulation sessions conducted in our units provide opportunities to practice caring for a wide range of patients at various stages of life and wellness. Students get plenty of hands on time with it all, so that in their clinical rotations they're familiar with the equipment often seen in local area healthcare settings.
