The UCI Medical Education Simulation Center, located within the medical education building at the School of Medicine on the Irvine campus, is a $40 million, 65,000-square-foot state-of-the-art medical simulation center. The Simulation Center includes a full-scale operating room, emergency room trauma bay, obstetrics suit and critical care unit. Alongside the Simulation suites are two dedicated debrief rooms and a state-of-the-art command center. Each suite is equipped with 360-degree, ceiling mounted cameras, omnidirectional hanging ceiling microphone and wall mounted equipment.

The Simulation Center provides simulation-based educational programs for UCI medical students across four years as well as UCI residents, fellows and faculty. The Simulation Center provides interprofessional medical simulation education and training activities for learners which enhances competence and strengthens collaborative practice across the continuum of care in a safe simulated environment. The training is enhanced by using high fidelity mannequins and educational task trainers.
