Simulation training for surgical and medical procedures

The Multidisciplinary Simulation Laboratory, part of the UNC Department of Surgery, provides simulation training in surgical and medical procedures for resident physicians, medical students, physicians, nurses and surgical technologists. The center also hosts medical industry simulation training.

The simulation center opened in 2014 as part of the UNC Division of Cardiothoracic Surgery and is on the 10th floor (Room 1001) of Brinkhous-Bullitt Building. It consists of three simulation labs, one operating room with attached control room, a resident workroom with seven work spaces, two rooms with six office spaces for research, and a conference room.
