HSC Regional Simulation Center

Providing students and community with innovative training in real-life environments using cutting-edge technology.

Tcom Interview

The Health Science Center at Fort Worth is committed to creating solutions for a healthier community. We do that by educating and graduating exceptionally well-trained health care providers, and by providing resources that meet the health care, education and training needs of Fort Worth, Tarrant County and beyond. HSC is widely recognized for its interprofessional approach to education and training, encouraging students to learn in ways that mirror real-life professional practice. Our new Regional Simulation Center reinforces this approach.

The state-of-the-art simulation center for students and community partners includes a large procedural skills suite, immersive virtual reality simulation rooms and a home suite for hands-on practice working with patients where they live.

Tcom Interview 2“We can change from an operating room, to a trauma bay in the E.R., to a home health situation and it a rural disaster medicine-type situation just because of how flexible the lab is designed.”
