Simulation Experiences

The Health Sciences Education and Research Common’s (HSERC) simulation space is closed indefinitely, with all bookings up to the end of May cancelled. There will be no financial penalties for the cancellation of HSERC Space bookings due to the COVID-19 situation. We are continuing to monitor updates and follow recommendations by the University of Alberta and Alberta Health Services and will update this message in the coming months as this situation evolves.
The Health Sciences Education and Research Commons (HSERC) uses innovative tools and spaces to create and deliver challenging simulation activities. HSERC houses 1,400 m2 (15,000 sq ft) of highly flexible space designed to support health team education.
