Clinical Simulation Program

Clinical Simulation Program - Departments & Programs, Programs and Initiatives

One of the most challenging aspects of training for health professionals is providing robust and realistic learning opportunities to prepare for actual patient care situations. To address this educational need, UW Health launched an integrated strategic initiative to construct a state-of-the-science simulation center with multi-disciplinary facilities, resources and curriculum. 

Capable of conducting inter-disciplinary health care scenarios, the new program brings together current simulation activities and ensure that UW Health takes advantage of the latest simulation techniques and technologies in this rapidly growing field of health professionals education. The 6,500-square-foot facility, located in the H6/1 module of the first floor of the Clinical Science Center (CSC), has already begun training physicians, nurses and emergency responders in a setting that mimics operating suites, hospital rooms and trauma centers.

Medical simulation is a growing field, and more and more credentialing organizations are requiring simulation training as part of their curriculum. 

The UW Health program will encompass all disciplines and practitioner populations and will support our goal to provide unsurpassed patient care quality and safety to our patients. A robust simulation research program will also help to define the future of simulation-based health professional's education.
