Clinical Simulation Labs: State-of-the-art facilities where health care students develop their clinical decision-making skills in a controlled, life-like environment that poses no risk to patients.‌

Within our Clinical Simulation Labs, students and practitioners gain vital experience by participating in realistic clinical case scenarios with faculty guidance. The practice of simulation-based health care education is advanced through a program of research with the ultimate goal of making health care safer for patients.
