About Clinical Simulation
The Scott & White Clinical Simulation Program has been involved with the education and training of medical students and healthcare professionals at the Temple College Simulation Center since 2004. Due to increased requests for simulators at the point of contact, the Scott & White Simulation Center was created at the main campus in Temple. The program uses high- and low-fidelity manikins and patient-actors to allow the learner a risk-free environment with which to practice and learn various procedures and methods.
In collaboration with the Texas A&M University Health Science Center College of Medicine and the Temple College Simulation Center, the Scott & White Clinical Simulation Program aims to replicate realistic clinical experiences and provide a safe and challenging learning environment.
