Mission Statement

The Touro University Clinical Skills and Simualtion Center will support the Touro University Mission and Values by providing students with a safe, supportive environment for the learning and assessment of clinical skills through authentic simulation. 


Clinical Skills and Simulation Center

The Clinical Skills and Simulation Center is a simulated healthcare clinic setting offering Touro students two distinctive modalities of simulation: Standardized Patients, people trained to respond as a specific patient in structured interactions with clinical students & Human Simulators, life-size high-fidelity manikins in a critical-care setting. 


Standardized Patient Program

Our robust Standardized Patient Program is housed in 15 simulated clinic exam rooms outfitted with video/data capture technology. Our Standardized Patients (SPs) are carefully chosen and trained to enhance student experience with real life scenarios designed to support course material. Through many interactions with SPs, TUC medical students reinforce and track milestones in communication, physical exam, clinical reasoning, and professionalism.


Simulation Center

This university wide program features a simulated ICU/Emergency Room setting and two hi-fidelity human simulators with instant video replay for debriefing and feedback. Students of varied clinical disciplines experience the impact of interprofessional communication and teamship in the care of patients and their families. With communication as a central goal, students of nursing, osteopathic medicine, pharmacy, physician assistant and public health collaborate in realistic, varied scenarios designed for collective competency in patient safety.
