Interprofessional Immersive Simulation Center

01 Challenge

The University of Toledo had a vision: create a transformative learning program with interactive 3D virtual technology that simulates clinical environments for students and staff at all the University’s colleges, the University Medical Center, and area hospitals. In collaboration with university professionals, BHDP turned their vision for the future of healthcare education into an interactive reality.

02 Solution

HDP worked with university health professionals and simulation experts to create the Interprofessional Immersive Simulation Center, equipped with an i-Space™—the world’s first five-sided seamless LED virtual reality center for medical training, education, and research — and a virtual hospital outfitted with human patient simulators, state-of-the-art clinical equipment, and observation, control, and debriefing rooms.
