Equipped with the latest in medical simulation technology, the UTRGV Simulation Hospital is helping transform health care in the Rio Grande Valley. The technology, which can simulate a wide range of clinical challenges, from a heart attack to delivering a baby, provides training to clinical health professionals at all levels and prepares them for work with patients.

For current and future physicians, nurses, pharmacists and allied health professionals, the use of simulation technology produces a significant impact on the quality of patient care and lifelong professional skills.
