Simulation Centers

OHSU's two simulation venues provide the range of capacities that supports training across the OHSU curriculum and advanced professional training.

The 27,000 square feet of simulation space centralizes and coordinates simulation training for programs across OHSU and for continuing education and specialty training across the state. OHSU Simulation also supports and works with four local Simulation and Clinical Learning Centers across Oregon.

Located at the Robertson Life Sciences Building (RLSB)

RLSB is a next-generation health and science education and research center built to train learners in teamwork, communication, and clinical skills. The center houses multi-purpose classrooms, debriefing rooms, an eight-bed skills-training lab, and eight state-of the-art simulation suites. Audio and video systems in each room capture simulations and other learning activities and serve as powerful teaching tools.
