USF Center for Advanced Medical Learning & Simulation

The University of South Florida (USF) Center for Advanced Medical Learning and Simulation (CAMLS) was developed based on a new concept for training surgeons on new techniques and surgical equipment. This advanced surgical training center, located in the heart of downtown Tampa adjacent to area hotels and the city’s convention center, is expected to attract surgeons and healthcare professionals from around the world. RS&H provided consultant services to the Beck Group focused on the programming and design of surgical training suites, support vivarium, and support laboratories.
 
The facility dedicates 55,000 square feet to surgical skill labs, operating suites, lecture halls, exhibition halls, an auditorium, robotics lab, virtual hospital/simulation center, research, and innovations lab. The facility also serves students in USF Health’s graduate biomedical degree programs with evening classes in a convenient downtown location. An additional 25,000 square feet accommodates offices, as well as general classroom and lecture areas.
