About the Simulation Center
What is simulation education?
Simulations are clinical learning experiences that present students with a specific problem to work through in a realistic way. Simulation learning is more hands-on than a lecture, and it includes more intentional observation and reflection than a daily clinical routine. Simulations help students develop skills in communication and modern technology that equip them for a successful career.
How does it work?
Detailed simulation scenarios outline information that everyone from professors to students to simulation staff needs to know. During the scenario, students learn through hands-on practice with manikins or standardized patients. Afterward, they reflect on their experience in a conversational debrief with faculty and peers.
