UTHSC Simulation Program

About Us

The Simulation Program is committed to fostering education, research and professional development with a focus on enhanced clinical skills and patient safety through the use of simulation. The Program is supported by the University of Tennessee Health Science Center (UTHSC), in conjunction with a generous grant awarded by the BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee Health Foundation. Some activities are also supported by a grant from the Assisi Foundation.

The Simulation Program supports and facilitates the integration or expansion of clinical simulation (encompassing the use of standardized patients/family members/colleagues, task trainers, high fidelity human patient simulators, or virtual reality simulations) into professional degree programs and residency training programs across the UTHSC.
One major focus is the development and implementation of interprofessional learning opportunities with the expressed purpose of bringing together learners from two or more health professions to learn from, with, and about each other, building healthcare teams that work more effectively and improve patient outcomes.
