Simulation Bays


The core of the Center is comprised of four spacious simulation bays designed to look and feel like the patient care areas in the following clinical environments: Operating Room, Emergency Department, Intensive Care Unit, and Labor & Delivery.  Every effort is made in the Medical Simulation Center to replicate the clinical environment encountered by the learner.  Therefore, standard clinical equipment, monitors, and supplies are available to the learner in all simulation bays.  To expand the flexibility of the space and allow for austere medicine scenarios, custom scene curtains were designed to transform a simulation bay into an urban scene on the Charlottesville Downtown Mall or a wilderness setting in the Shenandoah National Park.  Each simulation bay is separated from its dedicated Control Room by a one-way mirror.
