Mobile Simulation

Simulation is a proven training strategy for all members of the health care team. Training in a simulated setting improves patient safety and generates cost savings for the institution. UAB Medicine’s mobile simulation lab helps provide this resource to rural communities across the state. As part of our Alabama Rural Health Collaborative (ARHC) efforts, the 38-foot mobile lab features two simulation areas and is equipped with the latest simulation technology. It is the only mobile lab of its kind in Alabama, and we can bring it to you!

Our program is designed to support the educational objectives in these rural institutions. Our highly trained staff can work with the leadership and the educators to deliver simulations that complement and enhance the existing initiatives.

We will always advise you to “SimFirst,” no matter the procedure, event, space or process. To learn more about how we can bring simulation to you, please email
