The Arizona Simulation Technology and Education Center (ASTEC) at The University of Arizona College of Medicine provides innovative collaborative learning opportunities for new students and seasoned practitioners alike, who learn, practice and assess their understanding of procedures in a high-tech, realistically simulated environment.
While medicine and technology have advanced rapidly over the past decades, the approach to medical education has remained largely unchanged for more than 100 years.
ASTEC is on the forefront of an exciting effort to transform medical training and reduce medical errors. As part of the UA College of Medicine, the center is committed to the creation, teaching and practice of the medicine of tomorrow.
Mission Statement: To use medical simulation, interprofessional education, and applied research to ensure that the delivery of healthcare is free of any and all preventable errors and the pre-hospital and clinical services are of the highest quality in terms of outcomes, prevention, and value to Arizona, the United States, and the world at large.
Purpose Statement: To provide realistic medical training using low and high-fidelity simulation mannequins, trainers, and artificial tissue models for all levels of medical learners.
