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.

All room bookings (theater or conference rooms) should be requested directly through IISC at: or call 419-383-4455
