Interprofessional Immersive Simulation Center


<< Back to Homepage

On April 22, 2014, The University of Toledo opened the nation's most advanced health-care training facility, the University of Toledo Interprofessional Immersive Simulation Center (IISC). The IISC is a three-story, 65,000-square-foot building located on the Health Science Campus. In this center, health-care professionals learn to care for patients by practicing skills and procedures using simulation, as well as learn to work as teams in a virtual hospital equipped with human patient simulators. In addition, the center includes the introduction of 3D and Virtual Immersive Environments to medical education.
