The William Maul Measey Institute for Clinical Simulation and Patient Safety (ICS) is an educational facility with two components: a Simulation Center that uses inanimate, programmable simulators to imitate physiologic and clinical conditions and a Skills Center that uses Standardized Patients for both teaching and evaluation. The mission of the ICS is to facilitate the learning of clinical and procedural medicine for all practitioners while promoting patient safety.
