The UCLA Simulation Center is located on the A-floor of the Learning Resource Center at 700 Westwood Plaza, across from the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center. Our newly renovated facility provides 9,000 square feet of space and access to state of the art simulation technology for healthcare training.
The UCLA Simulation Center gratefully acknowledges Maxine and Eugene Rosenfeld, whose generosity has helped UCLA maintain its role as a leader in this technology. UCLA was among the first institutions to integrate simulation technology, which has now become a standard for medical education, surgical training and health care team training. Such programs have resulted in improved performance, quicker response time, and less deviation from practice standards. Healthcare simulators increase trainee confidence and competence, improve patient safety, and can also yield cost and process efficiencies. UCLA's Simulation Training Program has grown steadily to meet a growing list of educational objectives within the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA and its affiliated partners and schools thanks in large part to the vision and commitment of Maxine and Gene.
The mission of the UCLA Simulation Center is to improve patient safety and advance healthcare education through deliberate practice, multidisciplinary training, and innovative research using multimodal simulation technologies. Our goal is to provide a safe, supportive and state-of-the-art training environment for trainees and practitioners, for individuals and teams. We accomplish this by delivering quality education and experiential training to all participants who visit our facility.
