University of Nebraska Medical Center Davis Global Center for Advanced Interprofessional Learning

The University of Nebraska Medical Center now offers a four-story building featuring replicas of hospital settings where students and health professionals can practice treating lifelike or computer-driven mannequins. The facility provides students high-tech visualization and virtual reality tools that will allow them to virtually map a brain or observe how a protein folds. The center is an interprofessional effort that includes disciplines from pharmacy all the way to nursing. 

Named after Edwin Davis, a longtime UNMC physician, the Davis Global Center also houses a five-sided virtual reality environment and a 130-seat holographic theater, and hands on applications. Other programs in the building include the National Center for Health Security and Biopreparedness for students to develop a new training, simulation and quarantine center to focus on Ebola and other infectious diseases.
