About Us

Utilizing our 22,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art facility, faculty and students work together in a safe, controlled and realistic medical environment that includes both human and computer-simulated experiences.

The CSETC helps students build confidence as they learn to interview, diagnose and treat patients. By combining clinical learning with human feedback, from Standardized Patients, and state-of-the-art human simulators, the CSETC significantly increases the amount of practice that students receive before they move on to work with real patients in a clinical setting, thus enhancing learning while ensuring patient safety.

  • Physical Examination Skills
