Space Allocation

The Center for Advanced Medical Learning (CAMLS): whose physical space is part of USF Health Morsani College of Medicine, and the broader USF Health community. CAMLS is a 90,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art, three-story facility that provides education and training in healthcare, for individuals and teams. CAMLS integrates simulation technology, aviation science, team training, and evidence-based best practices into innovative programs with measurable outcomes.

CAMLS utilizes EMS Sim IQ and B-Line Sim Capture as the technology integrators for tasks and team training, both with and without standardized patients (SPs). This closed-loop system allows for direct observation and recording of all training events hosted including teaching, assessments for evaluation, and coded debriefing. All faculty and learners have access to this system with a signature sign-on while on site within the USF Health system.

CAMLS space includes the First Floor with multiple OR surgical stations in large surgical bays, a trauma OR, an imaging room, a hybrid catheterization OR lab, a classroom, meeting areas, storage, office, vivarium space, and locker room facilities.

The second floor of CAMLS is predominantly occupied with classroom space, including an auditorium, amphitheater-style classroom, classroom with air walls to allow for larger / smaller configuration, executive boardroom, dining space, exhibit space, offices, and storage space.

The third floor includes the VPCC: (6,500 sq. ft.), which features SP clinical exam rooms, team-training rooms, debriefing rooms, individual training rooms (partial task and virtual trainers), and multiple storage and office spaces.

The third floor houses the Department of Medical Education’s UME Program Center for Experiential Learning and Simulation’s CSEC (Clinical Skills Education Center). This is a 3,500 sq.ft. space featuring 12 SP clinical exam rooms, a debriefing room, an open simulation space, and storage for the UME equipment and supplies. There is an additional classroom and FLEX lab located on the 3rd floor.

The USF Morsani College of Medicine Experiential Learning Lab (ELL) is located on the 3rd floor of the newest College of Medicine building. This 5,000 sq. ft. open black box theater features mobile walls that move along a track in the ceiling to accommodate a variety of setups from clinical exam rooms to simulation spaces. The open flexibility of this lab allows the learners to explore task training on their own time as well as provide a space for larger classes to move through simulation activities.
