We propose a campus wide integration of simulation-based instruction to improve learning, communication and collegiality. This intervention will be based on training in interprofessional group environments focused on problem solving, skill acquisition, and clinical reasoning which is engaging and responsive to the needs of learners. Significant infrastructural development will be made to the simulation center providing a highly-visible representation of integrative technology which should have a long-term positive impact on learning and patient care.
