Located in Justin Whiting Hall, the Jackson College Simulation Innovation Center is a state-of-the-art facility for students, faculty, health professionals and researchers dedicated to skill acquisition, patient safety and interprofessional collaboration.



JC-SIC is committed to providing excellence in simulation-based training through leadership, research, and interactive learner-centered experiences. Through innovative pedagogy and methodologies, JC-SIC will provide evidence-based and competency-based education promoting students’ cognitive, affective, and psychomotor skills.


We aspire, by providing challenging, immersive simulations, to deliver advanced and creative simulations with quality-driven opportunities to encourage exploration and promote the highest quality education and equitable outcomes to meet college-wide needs by:

  • Creating an environment for the learner that supports knowledge integration, problem-solving, and clinical reasoning to enhance practice readiness.
  • Create and design programs to address system needs that are research-based, prioritized, and responsive to the global environment.
  • Develop trainers to grow educational programs, leadership, and critical thinking skills within our healthcare and industry systems.
  • Prepare students by aligning with Jackson College’s statement of beliefs and values
