Simulation & Training Lab
The Cleary Kumm Simulation and Training Lab consists of a mock operating room (OR) and a skills lab equipped with four simulation tables. Using the OR integration software, the physician who is working in the OR can live stream video to:
- The simulation lab next door where students are working at their own stations
- Regional facilities where training can be occurring simultaneously
- The conference center on Level 4 of the ICE facility
The Ernest Micek Family Robotic Simulation Lab is widely used for human patient simulation sessions, standardized patient scenarios as well as specialized skills training.
As the program grows, the hope is to expand to add an inpatient hospital room, a trauma training room and additional skills lab and training space.
Beyond the walls
The Integrative Center for Education has applications beyond the walls of the building itself. Many of our patient simulators have been used in city disaster drills to offer realistic, hands-on training for firefighters, EMTs, law enforcement and others.
