Presentation Abstract:

The Interprofessional Experiential Center for Enduring Learning (iEXCEL) was created to transform health professions education through accelerating the adoption of simulation and visualization. A truly interprofessional endeavor, iEXCEL has been purposefully created to improve patient safety outcomes. The overarching vision is to improve human performance and effectiveness in healthcare. 

The Davis Global Center (192,000 sq. ft. simulation facility) serves as the headquarters for iEXCEL and this new facility actually replicates the total healthcare system so that the transfer of the patient from home to hospital and back can be practiced. Equipped with high advanced simulation and visualization technologies, the center also operates as an innovation hub where healthcare professionals can work with industry to address real-world challenges. This presentation will highlight the iEXCEL Visualization Team, as this cutting-edge program combines technology, art and science to “bring learning to life.” 

Within the Davis Global Center, distinct modalities of simulation, including advanced surgical skills as well as clinical simulation via human-patient simulators, are complimented and enhanced through the use of emerging media platforms such as Augmented and Virtual Reality (AR/VR). State-of-the art technologies that create Holographic and 3D imaging further transform the educational process, allowing learners of all levels of training to create, feel and experience macro to micro concepts. The iEXCEL visualization model offers an in-house content creation team comprised of medical artists, animators, computer programmers and more who work with clinical subject matter experts to create medical imagery that accelerate learning and understanding of complex anatomical and physiologic concepts. 

Through the incorporation of visualization and mixed reality training tools to train healthcare professionals, iEXCEL is evolving a model for healthcare education that truly serves the needs of our digital, visual and “hands-on” learners as well as providing a focus on addressing the critical need to provide safe and error free medical care.
