The virtual hospital environment
UC Davis ranks among the top teaching hospitals in the nation and is a regional resource for training physicians, nurses and other health-care professionals. The UC Davis Center for Virtual Care incorporates a variety of sophisticated simulation training tools to create a virtual hospital environment for practicing medical procedures. The versatile center can mimic a single intensive care unit or replicate the flow of patients through the medical center – from the field to transport through emergency treatment and surgery to the intensive care unit.
Virtual hospital applications include:
- Normal operations
- Staff assessment
- Clinical pathways
- Emergency operations
- Disaster response • Bio-terrorism • Mass casualty events
- Professional education • In-service training (onsite and telehealth)
- Continuing medical education
- Competency training and assessment
