Institute for Simulation and Interprofessional Studies (ISIS)

The primary goal of ISIS is to provide leadership in the use of simulation technologies to improve the quality of health care education, patient safety and outcomes.

Our nationally recognized center has placed UWMC at the "virtual" cutting edge in surgical skills and simulation. It is conveniently located on the first floor of the University of Washington Medical Center's Surgery Pavilion. ISIS received accreditation as a Level I Comprehensive Education Institute of the American College of Surgeons in 2006. For more details, refer to their website at
