Simulation at UCSD School of Medicine
The Center for the Future of Patient Care (CFPC) is located in the lower level of the Medical Education and Telemedicine (MET) building at UCSD School of Medicine. The MET is a 100,000-square-foot, four-story medical education and training center. The CFPC is composed of three areas: the Simulation Training Center (STC), the Professional Development Center (PDC) and the Center for the Future of Surgery (CFS).
The use of simulation technologies in the medical curriculum has dramatically grown and taken on an ever more important role. To support and expand this trend, the UCSD Division of Medical Education has opened a new Simulation Training Center (STC). This facility will serve our undergraduate, graduate, and continuing medical education programs in the new Medical Education & Telemedicine building that opened in September 2011.
The Simulation Training Center is currently equipped with three full body manikins, one infant manikin, a variety of "partial task trainers" and diagnostic / monitoring equipment. Other simulation technologies are being evaluated for future purchase. The current list of simulation equipment can be found in the "Simulation Equipment" link in the upper left section of the menu.
