CAMC Patient Simulation Center
The patient simulation center at CAMC provides the latest technology available to help health care professionals learn about real-life situations that could occur with patients. The CAMC Patient Simulation Center is the largest and most advanced facility of its kind in the state and a premier center nationally. At the center, students and health care professionals are able to gain experiences similar to real medical settings by treating life-like, computer-controlled mannequins, which prepares them for the demanding medical field. The CAMC Foundation raised more than $1 million to establish this innovative teaching center and continues to support the center on an annual basis.
