Welcome to UAB Clinical Simulation

UAB Clinical Simulation develops, delivers, and supports procedural, immersive, and systems simulations carefully designed for learners. Our team of skilled professionals collaborates with content experts from the various involved professions to deliver valuable, high-quality simulation events.

Simulation is a proven training strategy for all members of the health care team. The simulated setting provides a psychologically safe environment for care providers to practice procedures and high-risk clinical situations. Simulation improves patient safety and generates cost savings for the institution.

For these and many other reasons, we will always advise you to “SimFirst”, no matter the procedure, event, space or process.
