The Center for Clinical Arts, Skills, and Experiential Learning (CCASEL) (pronounced castle) serves as the hub for simulation activities of all modalities, clinical skills training and other experiential learning initiatives in the College of Medicine. It is also the home for the College’s Standardized Patient and Physical Examination Teaching Associate Programs, which allow trained community members to be part of the educational team by providing instruction and feedback to students about their communication, interpersonal and physical examination skills. The Center is overseen by Andrew Roblyer, CHSE, director of Clinical Simulation, and supported by an advisory board made up of representatives from all five health colleges at the University of Houston.

As part of its mission, CCASEL is available to be booked by external entities for simulation and training activities and may be able to provide event development support at an additional cost, depending on the needs.

For more information or to inquire about hosting a simulation activity, please email us at ccasel@central.uh.edu. Current medical students may also contact us to request access to the lab space for self-directed learning, practice and review at no charge.
