Simulation Lab Central

Room: H106G

Simulation Lab Central is available to all Health and Human Services students.

This simulation lab is designed as a single patient room.  This room can accommodate high-fidelity simulators, including Sim Man 3G. This space can be transformed into an intensive care room, a general patient care room, as well as an isolation room.  This area includes an anteroom that allows students to practice putting on masks, gowns and gloves in order to prepare for encountering infectious diseases.  A one-way mirror separates the simulation room from a control room where faculty observe student performance and adjust the simulator responses.
