Healthcare simulation across UIC’s academic health enterprise – UI Health – has made transformational advances in recent years. Collectively, the healthcare simulation spaces across our health sciences colleges serve thousands of learners across professions and across the training spectrum. Simulation professionals, faculty and staff alike dedicate countless hours toward leveraging the power of simulation. Spanning the full breadth of active learning strategies, simulation addresses clinical skill acquisition and maintenance, communication, teamwork, professional development and systems improvement.
Join us on September 17, 2021, during worldwide Healthcare Simulation Week, as we showcase our simulation experts, expand our horizons and highlight the strength of our work in service of our learners, our patients, our communities and the health of the state of Illinois and beyond.
