The faculty and staff at the Healthcare Simulation Center strive to increase knowledge and improve skills to promote patient safety by allowing individuals and groups to experience a representation of an actual healthcare event. The Healthcare Simulation Center serves students, residents, and staff across the Medical University enterprise in an 11,000 square foot facility and through “in-situ” simulation within selected clinical areas. The simulation center facility has 12 simulation rooms and 3 classrooms plus an inventory of 30 high fidelity simulators of all ages, from newborn to adult, dozens of task trainers, and several virtual reality trainers. Over 90% of the simulation activities held at the Healthcare Simulation Center use programmed scenarios, developed by our programming experts in conjunction with subject matter experts, to promote standardization of the simulation experience among different learners.

This event shaped our mission to enhance the education of healthcare professions and improve the provision of healthcare across the MUSC enterprise.|
