Health Sciences Simulation Center
Health Sciences Simulation Center: Opening August 2021
The College of Health and Human Services is committed to providing high-quality education and preparing the future health care workforce for New Hampshire and beyond. This Fall, the new Health Sciences Simulation Center will open to both returning and incoming UNH students in health profession majors.
The College of Health and Human Services’ Health Sciences Simulation Center will provide enhanced educational opportunities for students majoring in health and human services areas, including nursing, occupational therapy, communication sciences and disorders, athletic training and health sciences.
The Center will provide the next level of education, bringing students and faculty together in a high-tech environment, ensuring that students are maximally prepared and competent.
With major funding support from the State of New Hampshire, the University System and UNH, construction of the Health Sciences Simulation Center got underway in Fall 2020, and will be comprised of more than 20,000 square feet. The Center will house 35 offices, learning classrooms and fully equipped simulation labs that mimic hospital, clinic, primary care and other health care settings, giving students the experience of practicing in a setting with real equipment and technology.
Common spaces will allow students from across disciplines to discuss simulation cases and share learning from their respective fields. These settings further strengthen the interprofessional relationships that students will continue in their careers after graduation.
"Interprofessional education promotes a deeper understanding of each health care provider’s role for patient care, and how those roles blend together to create a truly comprehensive health care team.”
