  1. Kanbar News

    Kanbar Center is now offering American Heart Association Emergency Cardiac Care courses, including BLS, ACLS and PALS for a nominal fee. For more information click here.


    Kanbar Simulation and Scholarship meetings are starting up again! The sessions take place every 2nd Monday of the month, 12-1pm in room CL-201 in the Parnassus Library, with a webex call-in options. For more information click here.


    Teach for UCSF: Accelearated Path to Mini-Simualtion Teaching Certiicate 2016 workshops are scheduled for Thursday, November, 17, 2016, 9am - 5pm, at Mission Bay. For more information click here.  


    New equipment at Kanbar:
    • MamaBreast is a wearable simulator that allows highly realistic simulation of breast feeding and breastmilk expression. For more information click here.

    • Mama-U represents a postpartum uterus after birth. It supports training in postpartum IUD and uterine balloon tamponade insertions and other postpartum uterus interventions. The model is ultra-portable and can be used as a tabletop model for task training, or inside MamaNatalie for a complete birth simulation. For more information click here.

  2. Mission

    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

    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.
