A new state-of-the-art, $8 million simulation center debuts this month at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa that will put the School of Nursing and Dental Hygiene on the map as a leader in the use of simulation in healthcare education.

The UH Translational Health Science Simulation Center in Webster Hall on the Mānoa campus will serve as a campus hub for interdisciplinary health science research, simulation and research education. Students, educators, practicing healthcare providers and researchers will be able to utilize the simulation and learning laboratory.
