Welcome to the Kanbar Center for Simulation, Clinical Skills and Telemedicine Education

What we do:

We support UCSF's educational mission of teaching, learning, and assessment through simulation recreating routine and complex situations, thereby improving patient care and safety. The center serves all five health professional schools at UCSF and provides learning opportunities across the continuum of health professions education.


Innovations and scholarship are a major focus of our center, where novel programs include interprofessional sessions with standardized patients, hybrid simulations focused on the ethics of healthcare, and longitudinal curricula that incorporate the the principles of viacarious learning.


Tele Technology Education: tele technology equipped rooms in our Simulation Center and the Anatomy Learning Center provide live videoconferencing broadcast for room to room team based learning.
