Tech-driven skills and simulation labs that let you gain real-world experience through standardized patients, computerized mannequins and controlled clinical settings. Large, open lab areas encourage interdisciplinary collaborations and enhance learning opportunities.

Center for Interdisciplinary Clinical Simulation and Practice

Overview

CICSP front deskThe Center for Interdisciplinary Clinical Simulation and Practice (CICSP) is designed to simulate clinical settings, providing undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to learn and enhance their skills. Our learning and evaluative assessment labs provide a safe clinical and psychological environment where students experience real-world scenarios to build competence and confidence in their skills.

The 22,000-square-foot lab incorporates technology that allows faculty to control and monitor real-world clinical settings that aid in student education and evaluation. Interactions between students and computerized mannequins within the controlled simulation labs are observed and recorded for later viewing and evaluation by faculty and/or peers. This comprehensive, hands-on learning model provides the optimal environment for students to develop skills, learn from mistakes, and become adept and competent caregivers for patients.

All programs within the College of Nursing and Health Professions use the labs, making the space an interdisciplinary learning environment with a wide breadth of learning possibilities. Supported by advanced technology and an innovative learning model, CICSP enhances students’ core education by providing supervised instruction in controlled settings to graduate competent care providers.

Mission

The mission of CICSP flows from the Missions of the programs we serve:

  1. To provide an environment to promote the clinical practice in a professional setting and foster studying.
  2. Provide tools to deepen the learning experience in the Nursing, Physician Assistant, and Rehab Science Programs primarily, as well as support all of the programs within the College of Nursing and Health Professions as needed.
