In anticipation of the official November 2018 opening of the Global Center for Advanced Interprofessional Learning at the University of Nebraska, I’m sharing a few articles that have been written about the school’s Interprofessional Experiential Center for Enduring Learning (iEXCEL), which will operate out of the facility. The interprofessional center is meant to improve healthcare by enabling learners to train in a hands-on, safe environment using visualization and simulation technology.
AVI-SPL is the integrator for this project, and playing such an important role continues to be a great source of pride and an example of what is possible with the kinds of technology in which AVI-SPL specializes.
Recent articles about technology in healthcare education have looked at iEXCEL and its mission to reshape the delivery of healthcare education.

In a second post this week, I’ll share a video that the University of Nebraska has created to share its excitement over this program.
