The University of Toledo’s $36 million Interprofessional Immersive Simulation Center project consists of administration space and the Hillebrand Center, which simulates medical cases for student training.
The first floor focuses on virtual immersion reality (VIR) spaces, which include virtual equipment and educational use, as well as CAD walls and a holographic theater. Some of this equipment will have the ability to reach other spoke sites on the main campus, other U.S. sites, and potentially around the world.
The second floor is primarily medical training related, such as student and industry training on simulation equipment related to nursing, surgical, and general training. This area also emphasizes virtual and dry-lab spaces.
The third floor of the center includes the majority of the hands-on wet-lab training, which is related to surgical skills and/or spaces with cadaver use. The main focus of this floor is a large operating room that has ability to have multiple training functions for large or small groups.
