Education & Training Facilities

2 min read

As health care continues to evolve, the various modes of training health care professionals are ever-changing as well. Clinical simulation allows learners to experience realistic healthcare settings utilizing patient manikins and advanced technology in a safe environment. By seeing and experiencing real-time outcomes, learners gain powerful insight while learning specific techniques and procedures.

Our training facilities provide for a variety of hands-on, knowledge in action opportunities which supplement more traditional learning mechanisms including lectures, apprenticeships and practice-based learning.
