Florida Facilities

The J. Wayne and Delores Barr Weaver Simulation Center at Mayo Clinic's campus in Jacksonville, Florida, provides team and individual skills training for Mayo physicians, residents, students, nurses and allied health professionals and for learners from other organizations. The Society for Simulation in Healthcare-accredited center comprises approximately 9,500 square feet of multidisciplinary simulation training space, complemented by an additional 2,500-square-foot expansion of the center's Procedural Skills Lab.

The simulation center staff assists in procuring and presenting materials to support or modify scenarios to meet specific training needs. In addition, the simulation center offers basic and extensive faculty development courses.

Standardized Patient Program

Patient receiving bad news scenario is portrayed with live actors at Mayo Clinic's J. Wayne and Delores Barr Weaver Simulation Center in Jacksonville, Florida.

The center incorporates the use of standardized patients — actors trained to portray roles of patients, family members, or others — allowing learners to practice communication skills, physical examination, delivery of bad news and other exercises. Through vigorous and innovative training, standardized patients play a vital role in real-life portrayal of healthcare-based scenarios. The standardized patient interacts with learners in a safe environment that does not put actual patients at risk. 

Training rooms
