Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

5 Scopus citations


Background: Simulation facility design has progressed over the past decade. Many schools and hospitals have the need to build flexible, forward thinking simulation education spaces. Method: Through the experience of designing and opening a multispecialty simulation facility, many lessons have been learned, and several innovative aspects of simulation center design, which make simulation facilities extremely flexible and usable, have been identified. Results: This article focuses on design concepts that provide options for simulation facilities to be both functional and operationally sound. Conclusions: When designing or modifying simulation facilities, specific design elements add to the functionality and flow of the space and should be considered in consultation with architects, builders, and planners.
