Description of Clinical Skills and Simulation Center (CSSC)

Clinical Skills and Simulation Center is a 9,000-square-foot training facility that contains three simulation rooms and 12 patient exam rooms.

Project Design Priorities

Innovation and Collaboration

This space features 12 patient exam rooms where students can practice taking medical histories and refine their bedside manner with standardized patient-actors. Computerized mannequins display symptoms and distress the same way real patients do, giving students opportunities to practice procedures like putting in a blood line or intubation before doing so on a human patient. Each room is fully wired for audio and video, so faculty members can watch students' performances from central control rooms and provide post-procedural training in a debriefing session.
