Donald E. Rager, M.D. Clinical Skills Laboratory
The Donald E. Rager, M.D. Clinical Skills Laboratory (RCSL) is a state-of-the-art medical education and simulation training facility located at the University of Illinois, College of Medicine in Peoria, Illinois. The RCSL is an independently funded nonprofit community resource committed to providing cutting-edge simulation technology for the benefit of enhancing healthcare education and improving healthcare quality and patient safety throughout our region.
Training with simulation is a way to replicate real-life medical events as often as necessary to advance understanding in a no risk environment. The RCSL provides the most sophisticated simulators on the market and manufactured by Medical Educational Technologies Inc. (METI). When visiting the RCSL, users will train with full-size adult, pediatric and baby simulators. These high-fidelity computerized human patient and emergency care simulators can imitate numerous pathological conditions while responding to learner actions independently and without the input of a control technician. See About RCSL to learn more.
The Rager Lab is open to serve educators, healthcare providers and community groups interested in healthcare and educational technology.
