UT-Interprofessional Immersive Simulation Center (IISC)


A Transformative Learning Environment - Developing the Simulation Curriculum - Partnering with the UT-IISC™

Regardless of professional discipline, ideal training scenarios are developed from a perceived educational or clinical need.  This approach is in contrast to selecting training scenarios from a list of courses.

The staff of the UT-IISC™ possesses expertise in creating training scenarios and in developing outcome measures that address almost any educational or clinical need.  Please feel free to contact us to begin a discussion on how to create the best possible training experience for your students or staff. 

You may use these UT-IISC™ goals as guidelines:

1.  Create a safe learning environment through the development of training exercises using task trainers, human patient simulators, fresh tissue labs, and virtual immersive environments.

2.  Improve patient safety and clinical quality by addressing educational and/or clinical safety and quality needs.  Examples are:  improving lower than average scores in specific areas in national examinations and addressing higher than expected infection or mortality rates.

3.  Routinely assess and measure the effectiveness of simulation on individual and group learning outcomes.

4.  Assess and measure the effect of simulation training on clinical outcomes.

5.  Study human performance and effectiveness, especially as it relates to team functioning.

6.  Advance experiential, visual and e-learning opportunities at The University of Toledo.
