Potential Educational and Research Activities

All 24 exam procedure rooms are designed to faithfully recreate the clinicians’ environment. Trainees experience simulated encounters that develop and enhance key clinical skills. The rooms can be used for single-discipline or team-based learning and practice, and provide a suitable environment for mock, or actual OSCE examinations. These spaces are highly flexible and can be configured for a variety of uses including: community consultation simulations, leadership training, negotiation and diplomacy skills training, cultural competency training and empathy skills training.
