The Medical Education Simulation Center advances UCI Health’s mission of Discover●Teach●Heal by developing, delivering, and evaluating pre-clinical, graduate, and interprofessional medical simulation education and training activities for learners, faculty, and staff to enhance competence and strengthen collaborative practice across the continuum of care.


The Medical Education Simulation Center aims to:

  • Provide a safe simulated environment for learning, where quality patient care and professionalism is emphasized, through the utilization of evidenced based clinical decision-making and evaluation methods to ensure best practice.
  • Develop new ways to integrate interprofessional scenarios into the simulation curriculum to enrich multidisciplinary learning.
  • Foster simulation research to improve healthcare education, processes and outcomes.
  • Maintain transparency, communication, efficiency and feedback to guarantee high quality stakeholder satisfaction.
  • Create simulation-based educational programs to assist in maintenance of certification, to improve and enhance learner competence, and to serve as outreach to professional organizations.
