The simulation lab faculty use healthcare simulation to promote excellence in simulation-based education and teaching.  With over a decade of experience in healthcare simulation, we are recognized experts in developing and integrating accurately modeled high-fidelity human patient simulations for the health professions.

Ongoing projects include creating sustainable interdisciplinary high-fidelity simulation-based curricula and programs for the university and regional healthcare community.

Doctor of Pharmacy Students

We have integrated our intensive, immersive simulation-based experiences for Doctor of Pharmacy students with our organ systems-based curriculum. 

  • P1 year—Illustration of basic physiologic and pharmacologic principles including autonomic pharmacology and management of complex disease states such as septic shock. IPPE hours are integrated into the P1/P2 curriculum.
  • P2 year—Students practice physical assessment skills and formulate therapeutic recommendations for simulated patients with acute asthma and COPD exacerbations.  Inter-professional CNS case studies are offered.
  • P3 year—Simulation is used to foster communication, mutual understanding and teamwork between students from pharmacy, nursing, and medicine.
  • P4 year—APPE students rotate through the simulation lab gaining clinical insight through modeling of complex disease states. Students complete this rotation by delivering the simulated case in a peer-to-peer setting.

Nursing & Allied Health

We also provide pharmacology-focused simulations for nursing, physical therapy, and kinesiology students.
