Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center F. Marie Hall SimLife Center

I'm here in Lubbock attending the 9th Annual MD/MBA Conference. This afternoon, Dr. Sharon Decker spoke about technology innovations in medical education and the F. Marie Hall SimLife Center. This state-of-the-art patient simulation center opened last year. The center will focus on an interdisciplinary approach to teaching health care students with an emphasis on patient safety.
