Welcome to Center for Human Simulation and Patient Safety

The newly established Center for Human Simulation and Patient Safety, a collaboration between the VCU School of Medicine and Health System, promotes excellence in teaching, research, and clinical care through the use of simulation resources.

The last several years have seen growing interest in the use of simulation for medical education, team training, patient safety and improvement in health care. Simulation offers opportunities for teaching new skills as well as supporting improved methods for documenting and demonstrating competence.

The Center provides an opportunity to consolidate simulation resources across departments and divisions in the School of Medicine and to foster educational integration, collaboration and research in the emerging field of medical simulation. In addition to enriching clinical medical education, the Center's mission is to improve patient safety outcomes and quality of care through use of clinical simulation in education and research.
