Simulation is a cornerstone of the College of Health Sciences experience, and the fourth floor was developed to support and expand this enriched learning environment.  The Research and Education for Adaptive Living Apartment is a key part of this space, along with the Healthcare Theatre, allowing undergraduate and graduate students to simulate patients environments using virtual and augmented reality that mimics real-life.  This floor also strengthens interprofessional team practice with additional space for training, education and collaboration with academic and clinical partners.

Visualization Lab for Interprofessional Education & Research

These state-of-the-art spaces will help effectively train the next generation of healthcare pre-professionals for the complex nature of team-based, patient-centered health, and social care delivery. Fully immersive and adaptable, these spaces offer hospital, home, and community care settings, as well as emergency situations and full-on disaster simulations.  These spaces can also be utilized for more traditional learning environments such as seminars, breakout sessions, group-based huddles, presentations, and even faculty development programs.  

Research & Education for Adaptive Living Space

This mock simulation apartment provides opportunities for functional status research, home-based healthcare simulation, and focus group research.  This state-of-the-art training space can be used by students, educators, and researchers across multi disciplines as well as offer training opportunities for the existing healthcare workforce in our area.  The flexibility of the apartment configuration supports community engagement research and research training.   The creation of a home environment with observational windows and media allows for both real time and recorded interactions with users in the environment.
