Lee College Simulation Center The Lee College Simulation Center is located in the McNulty- Haddick Complex.

The simulated experience offers a safe environment for stu- dents to practice clinical skills, therapeutic communication, patient interventions, team collaboration and clinical rea- soning. All simulations involve a period of debriefing for the students and faculty participating in the scenarios to have an opportunity to reflect on the scenario. Students partici- pate in the activities in the Simulation Center when assigned by the program faculty and additional Simulation Center times are available by appointment.
