We support UCSF's educational mission of teaching, learning, and assessment through simulation recreating routine and complex situations, thereby improving patient care and safety. Our learning activities cover the entire spectrum of patient care, from practice of history taking and physical examination to interprofessional team training and procedural skills practice.

We offer expertise and consultation in the use of standardized patients, high-fidelity simulators, and curriculum design including scenario development for simulation activities. The Kanbar Center supports both curricular innovations and educational research through its Simulation and Scholarship Group.
