Mohawk College’s new Centre for Health Care Simulation at the Institute for Applied Health Sciences (IAHS) located at McMaster University, is an innovative response to providing quality clinical placements for IAHS students. The new centre houses over 25,000 square feet of integrated clinical lab space and supports over 2000 Full and Part time students per semester. The centre is an inter-disciplinary learning environment enabling students to develop field and clinical skills as part of an inter-professional team. Students demonstrate skills and competency using technology enhanced simulation, paired with a simulated patient program. dpai designed the various space types to support and align with the IAHS vision. The project includes a new Ultrasound Simulation Lab, a new Cardiovascular Technology Lab, a new Accessible Testing Centre, a new Computer and Silent Study Lab, a new integrated and collaborative Resource Library (which includes a new service hub, a large anatomical model display case, various collaborative + solo study areas, small meeting rooms, brain storm area, study lounge and new stacks), a new Staff Workroom, a new Research Lab, a new Point of Care Demonstration Lab, an expanded Nurse Clinical Tutorial Lab and two new ADL Labs.
