USF Health CAMLS
USF Health is preparing for the formal opening of its new “Center for Advanced Medical Learning and Simulation” (CAMLS), a high-tech facility where medical professionals from around the world are expected to come for training and education on the latest high-tech medical procedures and devices. University Beat on WUSF TV takes you inside.
USF is known as the "home of the Bulls"—but now it can also be called the "home of camels." That’s “CAMLS” as in "Center for Advanced Medical Learning and Simulation.” USF Health is preparing for the formal opening of the new high-tech, downtown Tampa facility at the end of the month, and this week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7 has a preview.
Dr. John Armstrong, Chief Medical Officer for USF Health CAMLS, defines why the new center is a ‘game-changer’ for not just the Tampa Bay area, but medical education in general.
Dr. Deborah Sutherland, Chief Executive Officer for USF Health CAMLS, describes how partnerships with medical technology companies will help fund CAMLS’ ongoing operations.
Dr. Laura Haubner, Medical Director for CAMLS Virtual Patient Care Center, talks about some of the simulators used in the Center.
