Health Science Building
The newly completed 85,000 square foot Health Sciences Building provides a state-of-the-art training facility for healthcare professionals and was funded from the Lewis & Clark Discovery Initiative.
The Health Sciences building houses programs in:
- Dental Hygiene
- Medical Laboratory Sciences
- Radiologic Technology
- Respiratory Therapy
Simulation Center for Interdisciplinary Clinical Education
The Simulation Center for Interdisciplinary Clinical Education (SCICE) – The SCICE, located on the third floor of the newly constructed Health Science Building, is a fully functioning lab that simulates a hospital environment containing state-of-the-art human patient simulators. The Center offers a multidisciplinary approach to healthcare education and includes skills/task training, team training, integrated Standardized Patients, medical-surgical simulations, disaster training and emergency and trauma care training, Life Support training and long-term care.
The Simulation Center gives nurses, respiratory therapists, first responders and other healthcare providers the opportunity to learn and perfect the latest techniques and best practices for patient care and safety and provides an environment for students to practice and demonstrate a variety of clinical skills. Students learn psychomotor, physical assessment, and critical thinking skills necessary for clinical performance and have hands-on practice with the equipment and techniques they will need for the practice setting.
Using the Health Sciences beautiful new simulation facility, students will build upon knowledge and experiences from previous courses, clinicals, and labs. Students work in teams to accomplish the patient scenario, in the safe, controlled environment of the simulation lab.
