The Center for Clinical Learning (CCL) provides undergraduate and graduate students with realistic, evidence-based patient care experiences that develop clinical reasoning, critical decision-making, team-building, and technical skills using state-of-the art equipment, high-fidelity patient simulators, and trained personnel who act as standardized patients.

Current health care technology, such as tablet computers, electronic medication dispensing units, and other interactive hardware/software, is also utilized. The Center offers scheduled classes, simulations, and interprofessional experiences for students at all program levels as well as flexible opportunities for practice and remediation.
