Design and Develop Your Own Simulation Center

The first step in developing or growing a simulation center is performing a thorough needs assessment to determine your goals and objectives. While this likely includes designing the physical space and purchasing equipment, many failed simulation projects have stumbled here, resulting in empty rooms and expensive technology sitting dormant and losing value.  It is critical to formulate educational processes, operational infrastructure, resource management, and financial models that align with the institution’s needs, values, and vision to fulfill the opportunities that simulation can bring.

STRATUS has extensive experience in developing strategies that will maximize the use of your center.
