Clinical Simulation Center
The Clinical Simulation Center provides risk-free, hands-on educational programs. UMHS faculty and trainees use state-of-the-art simulators to learn the practice of medicine.
The inaugural event drew 200 people from 8 health sciences schools and several other units on campus involved in health sciences education innovation, evaluation, and research.
Educational Programs For Learners of All Levels
We offer a variety of in-person and online educational programs for medical students, residents, faculty, practitioners, and others, including courses, workshops, and a degree program.
In May 2014, the Department of Medical Education became the Department of Learning Health Sciences (DLHS). We are a basic science department focused on the learning sciences, applied to health, at all levels of scale from individuals up to large scale systems. DLHS engages colleagues across the entire University of Michigan Health Sciences community, the state, the nation, and the globe.
The department is organized into three sub-units:
- The Division of Professional Education, which focuses on learning by individuals and teams of care providers
- The Clinical Simulation Center, which focuses on learning by individuals and teams in environments with advanced simulation technology that model the real world of clinical practice
- The Division of Learning and Knowledge Systems, which focuses on learning at the levels of complex organizations and large-scale systems that span states and nations
