Health Care Simulation Center
HSC provides a simulation-focused learning environment to enhance the education of health care professionals and improve skills to promote patient safety.
The College of Medicine has a dedicated Center for Clinical Evaluation and Teaching with 8,500 square feet of space for teaching and assessment. The center includes three small classroom/conference spaces (20-24 seats each) and a clinical skills suite consisting of 10 examination rooms, corresponding observation rooms, and staging areas for trainers and standardized patients.
In 2011, the CCET was fully updated - all examination rooms were equipped with Clinical Teaching Audiovisual units and B-Line SimCapture units, providing for the digital capture and assessment of clinical skills using validated assessment checklists synched with simulator patient parameters or standardized patient findings.
Archived data from these systems is now linked through B-Line software with the MUSC Simulation Center to improve collaborative teaching and learner assessment.
