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:
Clinical Skills Laboratory
A voluntary, semi-structured learning environment guided by trained peer teaching assistants to develop and enhance surgical and diagnostic skills.
Anesthesia Simulation Activities
Second- to fourth-year students participate in increasingly complex simulated anesthesia cases in preparation for anesthetizing live animals.
Equine Simulation Case
From equine colic to learning how to safely move a downed horse.
Small Animal Cases
From CPR to advance simulation in an emergency or operating room.
Diagnostic Skills Training
Using medical devices such as ultrasound and endoscopy, students develop their diagnostic skills.
