New UTHSC facility will offer high-tech simulation of patients


In the new Center for Healthcare Improvement and Patient Simulation, they’ll be able to hone their skills in virtual reality — using high-tech manikins (jointed, detachable models of humans) and other computer and robotic simulators — before experiencing the pressure of seeing actual patients. Formally opening on May 11, CHIPS, as the state-of-the-art center is known, encompasses 45,000 square feet at 26 S. Dunlap, across from Health Sciences Park. Under construction since 2015, the $39.7 million building is the only stand-alone facility in Tennessee dedicated to patient simulation, and one of just a few in the entire U.S., according to UTHSC.
