Page Title: A New Pace For Teaching

No one ever wants to be a physician’s first emergency. With medical therapies becoming increasingly complex and patient safety increasingly scrutinized, the need for innovative medical education has never been greater.

The UT Medical School’s new Surgical & Clinical Skills Center combines a well-established clinical training program with sophisticated surgical simulation in one state-of-the-art learning center. Trainees will be able to repeatedly experience “controlled emergencies” using simulated patients. They will learn and practice complicated procedures in a realistic medical setting with all of the drama and none of the risk.

From practice to perfection, this center will instill a level of excellence in medical trainees that will translate directly to the patients they serve.

The UT Medical School has launched a $15 million campaign to build out and equip the Surgical & Clinical Skills Center. Now, we need your help to complete this unique facility.
