PUBLIC INVITED TO OPEN HOUSE FOR

REGIONAL MEDICAL SIMULATION CENTER

The public is invited to visit the new Regional Medical Simulation Center (RMSC) on the ENMU-Roswell campus on Thursday, June 16. The open house event will begin at 9 a.m. with a ribbon cutting ceremony by the Roswell Chamber of Commerce Redcoats. The RMSC located in the Health Science Center at 75 University Blvd. The entrance is on the south side of the center and visitors are asked to park at the southeast corner of the building. Demonstrations will be conducted every 30 minutes and light refreshments will be provided until 3 p.m.

This is the only high-fidelity medical simulation center in the Southeast Region. The state-of-the art facility consists of a control room and four simulation rooms with high fidelity mannequins. These simulated hospital or emergency home settings are designed to enhance student engagement and improve their clinical decision making skills. Each simulation room provides audio-visual professional recording capabilities to assist instructors in debriefing students in the classroom. Simulations are a great tool for ENMU-Roswell students and community healthcare providers to improve health outcomes.

For more information about the open house or the RMSC, please contact John Bitner at (575) 624-7435.
