The Clinical Simulation Centre (CSC) at MacEwan University is a state-of-the-art clinical lab and simulation learning space. The facility is a specially designed clinical environment in which students can safely integrate theory into practice. Students from a range of clinical programs use the CSC, including nursing, therapy assistant, social work, police and investigations and acupuncture.
Students use specialized technology to build on clinical experience and enhance learning. Integrated audio, video and software are used to exercise critical thinking through collaborative and reflective learning.
The CSC consists of two floors, containing eight labs. The centre is dedicated to interdisciplinary simulation-based learning. Each lab is equipped with the equipment, supplies and specialized technology to create a unique learning environment.
The goal of the Clinical Simulation Centre is to enable authentic simulation experiences that maximize student knowledge and skills, and therefore increase patient safety.
