Medical Simulation & Technology Laboratory

Simulation Surgery


The simulation program at UNMC is a regional leader in interactive, multidisciplinary education. We strive to provide students, residents and practitioners with a state-of-the-art, immersive educational experience. Through research and training programs, we continue to promote the highest quality of patient care and safety.

The primary aims of the MSTL are:

  1. Educate residents, medical students and current practitioners using simulation and technology to create a richer learning environment. 
  2. Innovate and promote new methodologies for medical education utilizing simulation and technology.
  3. Examine medical education through research.

Simulation exercises take place in the Michael F. Sorrell Clinical Simulation Lab. This 7750 square foot, state-of-the-art facility provides multiple environments to provide a realistic simulation experience. The recently added Dr. Wayne and Eileen Ryan Surgical Simulation Suite offers participants a complete modern operating room equipped with wireless mannequin technology amd full audio and video playback.
