Students in differing specialties are learning the importance of interdisciplinary teamwork and collaboration. The three-story, 65,000-square-foot facility is the first in the nation to incorporate three integrated simulation centers: a progressive anatomy and surgical skills center, an advanced clinical simulation center, and a virtual immersive reality center.

In 2015, the UToledo Board of Trustees approved an academic affiliation between the College of Medicine and ProMedica, a locally-owned, nonprofit health system providing quality health care services to 27 counties in Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan. This affiliation will put our College of Medicine on a path to long-term strength and expanded educational opportunities for our learners.
