Simulation Lab West

Room: H112D

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

Simulation Lab West (H112D) is designed as a single patient room. This room can accommodate the high-fidelity simulators SimMan Classic and SimBaby. This area can be transformed to mimic a primary care office or clinic, ICU, or Medical-Surgical patient room.  A one-way mirror separates the simulation room from a control room where the faculty observe student performance and adjust the simulator responses.
