The Center for Medical Education Innovation at Kansas City University provides a five-fold increase in simulation space on campus, supports a wide spectrum of competency- and skills-based training, and stands as a regional training destination in the greater Kansas City area. LEED certified, it places technology-rich, light-filled teaching labs in the heart of campus.
The CMEI increases the existing clinical skills curriculum and includes 10 simulation rooms, debrief rooms, clinical skills exam rooms, multi-purpose part-task training rooms, classrooms, support rooms, and offices. The striking design addresses the material palette and scale of the university’s architectural past while setting a new and forward-thinking direction for the future.

“The CMEI is much more than a building. This new facility transforms the curriculum for medical education and how medical and health sciences students are educated. Our students will have the opportunity to practice over and over in virtual scenarios until they are confident and prepared when it comes time to treat actual patients, thus reducing medical errors and improving health outcomes for the communities we serve.”Marc B. Hahn, DO, President and CEO, Kansas City University
