The primary goal of WISH is to provide leadership in the use of simulation technologies to improve the quality of health care education, patient safety and outcomes.

Our nationally recognized center has placed UWMC at the "virtual" cutting edge in surgical skills and simulation. It is conveniently located on the first floor of the University of Washington Medical Center's Surgery Pavilion.

WISH is the University of Washington’s premiere simulation training facility for healthcare education.

WISH received accreditation as a Level I Comprehensive Education Institute of the American College of Surgeons in 2006.
