Labs at the WSU Clinical Simulation Center

Students, residents, and veterinarians have the chance to learn new skills and polish skills they already have. In our labs, we use simulation to also teach the value and importance of teamwork and effective communication techniques.

Some of our student labs and simulations include:

Student suturing in Clinical Skills Laboratory

Clinical Skills Laboratory

A voluntary, semi-structured learning environment guided by trained peer teaching assistants to develop and enhance surgical and diagnostic skills.

Student working with machines in Anesthesia Simulation Activities

Anesthesia Simulation Activities

Second- to fourth-year students participate in increasingly complex simulated anesthesia cases in preparation for anesthetizing live animals.

Students moving a horse model in Equine Simulation Cases

Equine Simulation Case

From equine colic to learning how to safely move a downed horse.

Student working on animal model in Small Animal Cases

Small Animal Cases

From CPR to advance simulation in an emergency or operating room.

Students performing a procedure in Diagnostic Skills Training

Diagnostic Skills Training

Using medical devices such as ultrasound and endoscopy, students develop their diagnostic skills.
