Simulation Center for Health Science Programs
The Simulation Center for Health Science Programs provides a dynamic educational and realistic technological approach to patient care through the use of innovation with high fidelity mannequins and collaborative approaches.
The Simulation Center is located in Room 2500, and includes Skill Lab Rooms that are fully equipped to practice all clinical skills on sophisticated manikins. All skills labs can be video monitored and recorded. All health science programs have an opportunity to participate in the SIM Center, with uses varying per program.
Simulation is an essential learning experience for students as they can practice on manikins and use equipment in a realistic environment to make sure they are well prepared and ready to work in actual clinical settings.
Mission of the Simulation Center
The mission of the Simulation Center is
Innovational Health Science Training through Simulation…Changing Lives One Simulation at a Time.
The Saint Paul College Simulation Center offers learning opportunities for both novices to professional providers through a modernization of technological simulation, enhancing individual/ therapeutic knowledge and advanced care management to benefit an assorted population of constituents which includes students, business/industry/labor and the medical municipal.
