The UNTHSC Simulation Center is the first immersive virtual-reality simulation center in Fort Worth, Texas. Designed by SmithGroup and built by McGough Construction, the facility features expanded areas for clinical exams, 14 realistic-looking examination rooms, VR rooms with headsets and 360-degree projections, an adaptable ‘procedural skills & ADL’ home suite, and a ‘daily-living activities’ suite designed to resemble a home’s interior.
This state-of-the-art simulation center keeps students and veteran healthcare workers engaged in realistic environments through VR to help improve healthcare outcomes and patient safety. The center is open to first responders, hospital personnel, nursing home staffers, clinical teams, and hospital residency program trainees; while also acting as a beacon to potential medical school students, tech companies, and other entrepreneurs.
