Our mission is to provide evidence-based simulation and clinical training opportunities to advance the translation of education and knowledge into clinical practice. We offer a safe and engaging learning environment that complements the existing educational curriculum for USD medical students, residents, health professions students and faculty.
The Parry Center for Clinical Skills and Simulation is a state-of-the-art facility used to teach clinical communication, physical examination and technical skills for health professionals at all levels of learning.
Our vision is to advance clinical skills, patient safety, health care effectiveness and communication through the use of interprofessional teamwork, innovative technology and immersive training methods.
How is the Facility Utilized?
Medical students practice clinical communication and examination in a simulated setting--while receiving feedback--before encountering real patients. Additionally, digital recording allows students to review their performance and identify areas for improvement.
Discipline-specific scenarios are available for students of the health sciences, including nursing, physician assistant, occupational and physical therapy, alcohol and drug studies, social work and dental hygiene.
Resident physicians practice complex procedures on high-fidelity simulators and recreate challenging ethical situations with trained acting patients.
Physician faculty learn and practice teaching skills and other complex clinical skills.
