Health Sciences Simulation Center

Health Science Simulation Center Mission Statement

George C. Wallace Community College Health Sciences Simulation Center is dedicated to enhancing health sciences education by providing high quality, multimodal healthcare simulation. We strive to develop participants’ interprofessional collaboration, safe and effective patient-centered care, and confidence in clinical decision making with the use of current and emerging simulation tools. 

Health Science Simulation Center Vision Statement

George C. Wallace Community College Health Sciences Simulation Center will be nationally recognized for establishing standards of excellence in health sciences education for all participants. The HSSC seeks to consistently produce high quality healthcare professionals who will deliver safe patient care in complex and rapidly changing healthcare systems. 

While seeking to produce the most qualified graduates possible and respond to the increasing needs for healthcare workers, the College has expanded its hands-on resources to provide state-of-the-art learning with simulation. The Health Sciences Simulation Center (HSSC), located in Heersink Family Health Science Building, 1st floor on the Wallace Campus in Dothan, originated in 2009 with the purchase of three human patient simulators as part of a U.S. Department of Labor Community-Based Job Training Grant. Since that time and by combining external resources from several funding sources, the HSSC has expanded to contain 23 simulators. Each simulator functions in a fully equipped hospital-like cubicle, with digital recording systems to allow storage, playback, and transmission of clinical scenarios taking place in the learning environment. The HSSC is a resource available to all students and faculty within the College’s health programs. Current technology holdings include:

  • CAE Lucina (and baby)
  • Gaumard® HAL® S5301
  • Gaumard® Pediatric HAL® S2225
  • Hal®, Dynamic Airway and Lung Compliance Simulator
  • Harvey®, The Cardiopulmonary Patient Simulator
