Our Mission

Advancing patient safety by training clinicians to use existing devices, procedures, and drugs better via simulation and re-designing devices, procedures, and drug delivery.

We endeavor to foster communication and collaboration among the diverse UF Academic Health Center simulation entities and maximize effective use of all simulation resources.

We strive to provide a framework and template for other colleges and institutions to identify, discover, and list their simulation activities and to function as a virtual simulation center.
