The interprofessional Center for Experiential Learning and Simulation (iCELS) at UMass Medical School is available for use by organizations not affiliated with the Medical School, and our expert staff and faculty can assist your planning, clinical training and simulation experience, and program evaluation.
With the flexibility to simulate clinic rooms, inpatient facilities, disaster sites, and other health care settings, iCELS is a resource for creating teaching and assessment experiences. iCELS offers:
All institutions and individuals using the iCELS facilities should read through our scheduling and use protocols prior to confirming any rental. Users may reserve our simulation space, mobile equipment and/or staff support. Our team is happy to provide tours of the facility upon request, and work with you to create or enhance your program goals.
To reserve space, equipment and/or staff support, submit a completed reservation form. A planning session with iCELS staff is required prior to final confirmation of a reservation for new users or for experienced users with new cases/curriculum.
Submission deadlines for full consideration are:
Requests may be submitted after these deadlines but are subject to availability. Additionally, a minimum of 72 hours' notice (three business days) is requested for most resources; more complex projects require more significant lead time.
Cancellations must be made 72 hours (three business days) prior to scheduled use. If cancellations occur within 72 hours (three business days) of scheduled use, iCELS will charge for all contracted services.
Organizations must establish a formal letter of agreement prior to each event. Organizations outside of UMass Medical School should allow at least one month for creation and approval of the reservation proposal and letter of agreement.
