The Simulation Center at Fairbanks Hall

The Simulation Center at Fairbanks Hall brings Indiana's current and future doctors, nurses and technicians together in collaborative practice in a variety of clinical settings. Together, these interdisciplinary teams will practice on mannequins that respond like real patients, immerse themselves in computer-simulated surgery and react to complicated emergency room dramas.

Jointly operated by Indiana University School of Medicine, Indiana University School of Nursing and Indiana University Health, the simulation center's mission is to provide a replica of the patient care environment where health care providers can learn to apply cognitive, psychomotor and affective skills in a interdisciplinary approach.

The vision for the simulation center is to instruct and facilitate learning while objectively measuring a learner's performance and competency in the health care environment.
