TTUHSC Simulation Program
Mission and Vision
The simulation centers located at the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center
campuses in Lubbock, Abilene, and Odessa are multimodality and interprofessional in
scope. The mission of the centers is to promote simulation-based intra and interprofessional
education and research for the benefit of patients, community, and health care students
and professionals. Evidenced-based activities conducted within the centers assist
students, residents, and healthcare practitioners to develop and/or master the knowledge,
skills, attitudes, and behaviors required to practice collaboratively in today’s dynamic
healthcare environment. The integration of simulation, based on educational theories,
through-out various curricula supports the centers’ vision: Bringing Learning to Life.
The mission and vision of the simulation program supports the mission of Texas Tech
University Health Sciences Center: to improve health of people by providing high quality
educational opportunities to students and health care professional, advancing knowledge
through scholarship and research, and providing patient care and service.
