Sim Lab

Visit the recently accredited U-CISE lab to find out more about technical skills training for students, residents, physicians, and the community. From innovative low-cost models, to high-tech, virtual reality simulators, witness some of the newest approaches to training the next generation of healthcare providers.

  • Try your hand at laparoscopic surgery skills - Test your hand-eye coordination as you race other participants using actual laparoscopic grasping instruments in quick-fire elimination. Dropping the peg means immediate disqualification.
  • Watch a robotic surgery demo - Have you ever wondered how a surgeon can operate on a patient who is 10 feet away? Stop in for a robotic surgery demonstration with one of our General Surgeons on the Davinci Robotic Surgery training console.
  • Learn about the innovative use of low-cost training tools in medicine and surgery. See the models designed at the University and the supplies used to create them. Work alongside one of our trauma surgeons to put in a chest tube and find out how innovation and team training go hand in hand.

Prototyping & Fabrication Lab

  • Laser Cutting – Watch a laser easily cut through a 1” thick sheet of plastic and pick up a commemorative engraved coaster.
  • 3D Printing - Learn about the fascinating world of 3D printing.
  • Verification Testing - See an elastomeric “dogbone” stretched to 10x its original size and then break in a spectacular manner.
