Students & Professionals use real equipment in their case scenarios. At the Rural SimCenter you can work with high fidelity simulators of all sizes, live actors or a combination of techniques. We offer students the opportunity to train in a hospital setting with teams and resources that reinforce learning. Instructors can work at one of two fully equipped simulation control centers. Students are hosted in one of two comfortable SMART conference rooms. We encourage educators to explore the many equipment and training options available at the Rural SimCenter. Simulation is an important tool that can be used to train for high-risk, low volume events. Students will gain confidence using real equipment in real time so they can develop skills for use in clinical practice.
