TULSA, Okla. (AP) - Officials have broken ground on a new $6.4 million education center at the OU-Tulsa Schusterman Center.

The 16,000-square-foot Tandy Education Center will feature the latest advances in medical simulation. It will allow students to practice in lifelike circumstances using models or virtual reality. The center will include 10 exam rooms, two inpatient intensive care unit/emergency rooms, four interview consultation rooms and one apartment model for in-home situations.

It’s estimated that the simulation center will be used by about 1,000 health care professionals annually. It will be available to students, resident physicians, faculty, and students in other non-medical programs.

The Tandy Foundation provided a grant to construct the new facility.
