Embracing Simulation

UToledo researcher develops biometric sensory measures to analyze clinical simulation responses.

The University of Toledo’s simulation center reflects today’s reality of health care. The three-story, 65,000-square-feet facility serves as a hub for innovation to develop new products, processes and procedures.

Interprofessional Education

A highlight of the Interprofessional Immersive Simulation Center is integrated learning opportunities for students from many of the University’s academic programs, including medicine, physician assistant, nursing, pharmacy and other health professions. The interaction increases respect and communication between professions, improving learning outcomes and patient safety.

Advanced Clinical Simulation

The tri-center concept includes surgical simulation training suites, fresh tissue labs, virtual operating suites, and a virtual hospital with intensive care, trauma, and labor and delivery.
