About the Clinical Simulation Center

Simulation is a method of teaching that allows learners to experience a representation of a real healthcare event for the purpose of practice, learning, evaluation, or testing.

In the Clinical Simulation Center, students learn to care for simulated "patients" mimicking the physical signs and symptoms of diagnoses such as stroke, cancer or diabetes. Students may practice a range of skills such as starting IV’s or suturing wounds without fear of patient harm and can keep practicing until they get it right.

The center is open Monday through Saturday by appointment.

Hours are variable based upon needs, and range from 7:15 a.m.-10 p.m.

Our goal is to train highly competent health care professionals who possess the knowledge, skills and attitudes they need to succeed in the 21st century.
