Our Mission is to improve the health of the communities we serve. We do this by using the full spectrum of clinical simulation in trainings and assessment. We provide experiential learning opportunities for health care providers. We optimize process improvements prior to implementation within the organization. Education and clinical science simulation-based research is for the benefit of our patients.
Carilion Clinic’s Center for Simulation, Research and Patient Safety is accredited in teaching and education by the Society for Simulation in Healthcare. CSRPS receives exemplary marks for its focus on the patient experience and commitment to community engagement.
We will improve the delivery of health care for our patients by providing high quality simulation experiences for learners through integrated education, clinical practice improvement and research.
