3.13 Gilbert Medical Simulation Center
The Gilbert Medical Simulation Center is housed in the new Clinical Skills Center at HMS, which opened in September 2013 on the first floor of the Tosteson Medical Education Center. The 7,500 square-foot Clinical Skills Center includes eighteen exam rooms; three orientation classrooms (one for patients, one for students, and one for faculty); a small meeting room; a central control room; and a “touchdown” office for faculty. Ten of the exam rooms have movable walls to allow conversion to five larger rooms that accommodate wireless simulation mannequins. These expandable rooms replace the five simulation rooms that were in the space before the renovation, yielding the potential for seven simulation rooms on the HMS campus (including classrooms TMEC 104 and 130; see Section 3.12).
