State-of-the-art Medical Simulation Center

Students enrolled in the WVU MOT Program learn in the David and Jo Ann Shaw Center for Simulation Training and Education for Patient Safety (STEPS). STEPS isn’t just about education – it’s about patient safety. By providing a safe learning environment with fully responsive technology, our students are safer and smarter before encountering patients in everyday and critical care situations. This commitment to education and safety drives everything we do. The David and Jo Ann Shaw STEPS center is a state-of-the-art center for experiential learning with simulation. The 20,000+ square foot simulation center includes four ICU setups, like manikins, two 10-bed open lab spaces, twelve patient exam rooms, and more!
