The Center for Simulation, Research, and Patient Safety (CSRPS) is a facility where advanced, innovative teaching techniques and simulation technology are applied to the teaching of medicine.
These dynamic tools allow for hands-on learning of procedural and cognitive skills in a critical, real-life environment with no risk to patients or staff. The CSRPS is a valuable resource that serves over 1,400 learners a year from multiple disciplines, including the Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine, Jefferson College of Health Sciences and Carilion Clinic faculty and staff. We also work with external partners at other area health care and educational facilities.
Our mission is to transform and enhance medical education and to improve patient safety and quality of care through the use of clinical simulation in education and research. In short, our focus is on the patient and on helping faculty, staff and students find better ways to provide safe and effective care to our patients.
