An Approach to Innovation

Regis University Center for Virtual Simulation in Health Care Education

Health care is facing a shortage of health professionals, which can be addressed by increasing student enrollments. However, enrollments are limited due to the number of qualified clinical sites for health practitioners to gain clinical experience. Innovative approaches to clinical education are needed.

Regis University is leading the way toward a solution as we envision and evaluate a Colorado center for virtual health care education, where virtual simulations are developed and used as an alternative to clinical experiences.

The mission of the Center is to promote collaboration among health care educational institutions in Colorado to address clinical education needs through the development and use of virtual gaming simulations.
