The College of Pharmacy purchased a high tech manikin in July 2007 from Laerdal®. The Human Patient Simulator can be programmed to have a number of different diseases or conditions.
The College is one of a handful of pharmacy schools in the country to begin using this Human Patient Simulation technology. The technology is more common in medical and nursing schools.
The WSU Colleges of Pharmacy and Nursing are working with community health care providers in Spokane to raise money for a patient simulation training facility where health sciences students can learn and working professionals can upgrade skills needed for certification. See more pictures.
