Support Simulation Today

The Carlin Operating Room, located iCELS Simulation Lab at Level 2 of UMass Chan Medical School's Albert Sherman Building, was made possible through the generosity of iCELS Ambassador, the late Roberta Carlin. A difference in education quality is noted with the expansion of this facility. Dedications like this is one way for you to make a difference in the evolving field of medical education through this center.
