Sim Bay Closed for renovations
Posted: January 8, 2018
We are happy to announce that the renovation of the Sim Bay will begin within the next couple of weeks.  As of January 15th, all manikin simulations and cadaveric sessions will be held in the morgue at the HI Site, 2nd floor.  There are two empty autopsy suites at this location; one will be used for cadaveric work and the other for simulation.  The projected duration of the renovation will be nine months.

Please note this is a smaller area, so ideally learner groups should be 5 - 10 people in size.
If you need more room please consider the Skills Centre (Cadaveric) or Simulation Centre (High Fidelity)
