CAMPUS FEATURES AND SERVICES

The Office of Simulation in Medicine in Surgery (SIMS) was established in 2019 to promote more hands on learning experiences for RVU students through healthcare simulations. The SIM Center recently went under construction, Fall 2020 was a grand re-opening to our physical locations on each campus under a new name, the RVU Healthcare Simulation Center.

Our modalities include:

  • Standardized Patients (in-person and telehealth visits)
  • Virtual Reality Patients (on students' personal computers or on the university's VR headsets)
  • Task Trainers (for things like intubation, IVs, injections, cricothyrotomy, auscultation)
  • Electronic Manikins (for team-based trainings, including critical care and birthing simulations)
  • Ultrasound Machines
