Paris Simulation Center

The Center supports training of current and future healthcare professionals at the University of Louisville Health Science Campus. The Paris Simulation Center has four simulation suites - each suite contains a lab with a state-of-the-art computer controlled mannequin, a control room and classroom. The mission of the Dr. John M. and Dorothy Paris Simulation Center is to support the School of Medicine's educational mission through the use of real-time interactive simulation systems.The primary goal of the Center is to incorporate the use of the simulators into the School of Medicine undergraduate and graduate curricula. The secondary goal is to promote and incorporate simulator use into other curricula such as the School of Dentistry, the School of Nursing, and other schools and health care providers in the Louisville area.

Standardized Patient Program

The Standardized Patient (SP) Program is an integral part of the Alumni Center for Medical Education. It gives medical, nursing and dental students the real-life experience necessary to become better diagnosticians, communicators and healers. The SP Program employs highly trained educators to portray patients with a wide variety of symptoms and illnesses. Beginning in the first year of medical school, these standardized patients teach students to perform a complete physical examination, take a medical history and effectively communicate with an extensive and diverse population.
