Roper Hall

Welcome to the Simulation, Experiential Learning, and Training Center (SET Center) at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine. Located on floors 4 and 5 of the newly opened Roper Hall, the SET Center is a state-of-the-art medical simulation facility offering 24 patient examination rooms as well as six patient simulation labs including a fully functional operating room and 3 bed trauma bay.

At The SET center, we provide a realistic and immersive environment for learners at all stages of their medical education to practice and refine their skills. Whether you are a student, resident, or experienced healthcare provider, our cutting-edge simulation technology offers a unique opportunity to enhance your clinical knowledge and improve patient care.

The SET Center simulation rooms were designed to mimic real-life hospital settings, complete with high-fidelity mannequins, advanced medical equipment, and interactive computer programs. Our faculty instructors and facilitators guide learners through various medical scenarios, allowing learners to apply critical thinking, problem-solving, and teamwork in a safe and controlled environment.

The SET Center’s 24 patient exam rooms allow learners  to interview and examine Standardized Patients (SPs). SPs are members of the community trained to portray case scenarios to provide learners the opportunity to practice communicating with patients and perform physical examinations.  These experiences provide critical foundational learning.   Every encounter is recorded and captured by CAE LearningSpace for learner and faculty review.

The SET Center also collaborates with other educational institutions, healthcare organizations, and industry partners to provide research opportunities to push the boundaries of medical technology and improve patient outcomes.

Whether you are looking to enhance your clinical skills, improve you procedure skills with the assistance of task-trainers, or explore innovative approaches in healthcare, the SET Center is here to support your educational journey.
