Vision
To afford clinical education that stimulates clinical reasoning, critical thinking skills and psychomotor competence in an innovative setting.

  • Allow for learning in a safe, non-threatening and controlled environment away from the clinical setting.
  • Build confidence in clinical performance, including clinical reasoning and psychomotor skills.
  • Increase exposure to critical, yet low-frequency patient encounters in order to minimize the risk to patients.
  • Increase effective communication among all members of the health care team.
  • Develop simulation as a tool for the assessment of clinical skills
