Facilities

Simulation-based learning gives educators the ability to prepare health care students with advanced professional skills before they enter the workforce.

Four Fully Integrated Simulation Suites

The CSETC's simulation suites can be configured to replicate an operating room, two-room intensive care unit, two-bed emergency room, labor-and-delivery suite or other clinical setting. Learning in these scenarios may include a high-fidelity mannequin. These sophisticated computer-driven simulators replicate human physiology and clinical symptoms and responses with remarkable realism.

Faculty can participate in the simulation suite or observe from a state-of-the-art control room. Each simulation suite includes a digital system, through which all simulation exercises can be recorded. Students and faculty can access these recordings 24/7 through the Center's web-accessible video monitoring system. This video capability allows faculty to monitor simulation sessions in real time from a remote location or use video recordings to provide the students feedback during follow-up debriefing sessions.

Four Small Simulation Suites

Each of these rooms can be configured to simulate an inpatient hospital setting or other clinical environments.

The CSETC's inpatient suites are large enough for faculty members to participate in the simulation exercise or observe remotely using the digital recording and monitoring system.

Each of the available environments allows students to refine their clinical skills and decision-making abilities in a safe, controlled environment.

Twelve Clinical Examination Rooms

The CSETC has 12 outpatient clinical exam rooms. Each exam room is fully equipped and simulates a typical examination room in a physician's office. 

A posterior corridor allows Standardized Patients (SP) to enter the exam room prior to a clinical encounter. The corridor is equipped with one-way glass that allows faculty to directly observe this SP/student interaction.

Each exam room includes a state-of-the-art digital system through which all SP encounters are recorded. Students, faculty and SPs can access these recordings 24/7 through the Center's web-accessible video monitoring system. This video capability allows faculty to monitor SP sessions in real time from a remote location or use video recordings to provide the students feedback during follow-up discussions.

Surgical Skills and Simulation Lab

The CSETC is equipped with an open skills laboratory, where students practice basic procedural and surgical skills using more than 20 task trainers and other high-fidelity equipment.

Training / Debriefing Rooms

In addition to clinical learning spaces, the CSETC has facilities where faculty, students, residents, and other learners can meet to debrief simulation encounters. For More information, please contact Thanh Nguyen at 405-271-2769 or danthanh-nguyen@ouhsc.edu.
