Simulated Education Suite
The simulation suite is an immersive learning environment that allows students to bring their knowledge and skills together in an authentic way, while still providing the safety and structure that supports practical learning.
Students work in small groups with live standardized patients and/or high fidelity simulators in an acute care hospital setting. An onsite instructor supports students in practice, and dedicated debriefing time brings the group together after the simulation to discuss their experiences.
Simulation builds on students’ previous learning experiences, and is a chance for them to learn in a realistic environment without the usual risk. The immersive nature of simulation is what allows students to associate their practice with feeling and emotion, just like a real patient encounter. Students describe this aspect of simulation as most memorable.
