Facilities

Burrell College of Osteopathic Medicine’s Department of Simulation has a well rooted relationship with both hospitals in Las Cruces.  Through this relationship, the College’s Department of Simulation will provide in-house simulation scenarios in each hospital utilizing a high fidelity manikin to train their clinical staff in various scenarios.

The Department of Simulation also interacts with many entities in our community through training such as:

We conduct Interdisciplinary Simulations utilizing:

  • NMSU Police
  • NMSU Fire Response
  • AMR Ambulance
