Center for Immersive and Simulation-based Learning

The Immersive Learning Center Hosts its First Annual Open House for Stanford Medical Students

The Immersive Learning Center is excited to share it’s First Annual Open House to the Fall 2016 Stanford University entering medical students! The Immersive Learning Center (ILC) in the Li Ka Shing Center (LKSC) provides the most intensive form of active learning in medicine where learners address multiple different aspects of cognitive and psychomotor skills, including knowledge, hands-on procedures, critical decision-making, effective communication and teamwork.

The ILC open house will have two scheduled sessions on Wednesday, August 31, from 2:30-3:30pm and 4:00-5:00pm. During each session, students will meet Dr. David Gaba, Associate Dean for Immersive and Simulation-based Learning, be introduced to the ILC's features and services, visit and explore the ILC through engaging and informative presentations, and have the opportunity to ask questions and mingle with staff over refreshments. Visit the ILC Stanford Med Students Open House for more information on this event!
