Jump Trading Simulation and Education Center is a collaborative effort between OSF HealthCare and the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Peoria. Through the facility, both organizations now jointly plan and conduct multi-disciplinary, collaborative research.
During our tour of the construction site, we saw the framework for the first floor, second floor, and conference center spaces. The Conference Center encompasses an auditorium, lecture hall, conference room, debriefing theatre, and several smaller meeting spaces. The first floor contains the Anatomical Training Lab, Innovation Lab, Regional Transport Center, Virtual Reality Lab, and Skills Lab. The second floor houses the Virtual Patient Care Units, Virtual Intensive Care Unit, Virtual Operating Theatre, and four debriefing rooms.
We also had an opportunity to see some of the simulation babies and adults in operation.
OLLI thanks the staff at the Jump Trading Simulation & Education Center for providing an in-depth and engaging tour!
