Center for Simulated Patient Care


The University of California Riverside School of Medicine Center for Simulated Patient Care (CSPC) is a state-of-the-art simulated patient treatment clinic and education center that provides a secure, risk-free environment for current and future health care professionals to acquire and to perfect their skills.

The principal and guiding objective of the center is to advance and improve patient care and patient & care-provider safety. This objective is accomplished by a combination of exploration, team-building opportunities and analysis of innovative techniques of instruction, treatment, management, communication, and recovery.

These learning discoveries are then applied to ongoing developments in continuing research, retrospective forward-looking instructing, teaching & coaching, and task redesign & validation.
