Simulation Lab East

Room: H106A

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

Simulation Lab East is designed as a single patient room.  This room can accommodate the high-fidelity simulators, including Sim Mom, Sim Junior, and Sim Baby.  This area can be transformed to mimic a Labor & Delivery Room, Pediatric room, or Medical-Surgical patient room.  A one-way mirror separates the simulation room from a control room where faculty observe student performance and adjust the simulator responses.
