SAN DIEGO (AP) — Doctors will get a chance to practice their skills at a new high-tech medical simulation center at the University of California, San Diego.
The $100 million facility, which opens Friday, will give doctors hands-on experience in questioning patients and performing surgical techniques.
The North County Times reports that the facility is wired with cameras that record every practice procedure to give doctors feedback.
Doctors who earned their medical degrees years ago can also use the 100,000-square-foot facility to brush up on their skills.
An infrastructure bond approved by voters in 2006 paid about $35 million of the cost.
The university borrowed the rest.
