Our staff and faculty can assist your planning, clinical training and simulation experience, and program evaluation. iCELS offers rental space for photo shoots and conferences. Our staff has worked with multiple customers to create the scenes required in our flexible spaces for various photo shoots. For conferences refer to Space Description.

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 can provide tours of the facility upon request, and work with you to create or enhance your program goals.
