MITIE is designed to promote synergy between research and hands-on, skills acquisition training in surgical procedures by combining a procedural skills lab, a research core, and a virtual hospital. The research core includes a hybrid surgical suite and three simulated ORs. One of the largest facilities of its kind in the world, it’s a destination for developing – and using – new technology and procedural techniques. The virtual hospital includes two simulation operating suites in which physicians, nurses, and allied health professionals train on specific clinical scenarios, using full-size human patient simulators.
