The Forefront of Medical Simulation Technology

The TTUHSC simulation centers located on Lubbock, Abilene, Amarillo and Odessa campuses offer advance tools to prepare students for their clinical training. Working in simulation centers reflects the real-life situations seen in multiple settings, such as clinics, emergency departments and operating rooms while providing hands-on, interprofessional experience to the student without any danger to the patient. Simulation is our passion, your learning is our priority.
