Simulation Space

In fall 2021, the Bank of America Charitable Foundation provided financial support to build an Indigenous-developed clinical simulation space in the Center for Native American Health.

NAHS will construct 1,045 square feet of clinical space to include a patient exam simulation room, a hospital patient exam simulation room, a teaching and mediation room, and storage for the clinical simulation spaces and accompanying healing modalities. It offers its own Native American-developed and culturally based clinical patient exam room with telehealth and educational opportunities from Native providers and clinicians, WSU faculty across the three health science colleges, and interprofessional engagement between students and faculty. Indigenous patients can use the space to share their views of clinical communication and exchange.
