The Interprofessional Healthcare Simulation Center (IHSC), located in the northeast building of the Domenici Center for Health Sciences Education along with the Leonard M. Napolitano, Ph.D. Anatomical Education Center, will host an Open House for the HSC Community on Oct. 15 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. The IHSC, occupying the first floor of Domenici Phase II, is the newest learning environment at the Health Sciences Center and houses interprofessional simulation based education.

The unique design of the IHSC co-locates Nursing, Medicine and Pharmacy programs and provides an opportunity for clinical students to learn, practice, and be assessed on essential patient care skills. Events include opening remarks at 10 a.m. by the HSC deans, tours of the IHSC beginning at 10:30, and will include demonstrations of the simulation equipment and learning spaces.

Faculty, staff and students are all welcome to attend.
