Advanced Medical Education

Advanced Technology Education Endowment

The Advanced Technical Education Endowment and the Health Sciences Complex Simulation Lab Fund have been established to underwrite future education needs.

Donors can make contributions to help underwrite future educational needs. Continuing education is essential in all areas. We anticipate the Advanced Technology Education Endowment to not only pay for maintaining the levels of training required, but to excel and advance training to expertise levels.

You may also donate directly to the Simulation Lab at The Medical Center-WKU Health Sciences Complex. The HSC opened in 2013 and provides space for The Medical Center to offer advanced training with sophisticated technology for its clinical staff. These labs offer high-level training that is not a part of most hospitals. The Medical Center simulation lab is full of life-like virtual patients in realistic hospital care settings, allowing for a unique educational experience. An entire medical team, including physicians, nurses, paramedics and respiratory therapists, can train in an interconnected way. 

The result is life-saving responses when real-life scenarios occur! This gift to our medical community and the community-at-large is possible because of donations from those who believe in the great value of educational excellence in healthcare. The Education Endowment has been established and provides a chance for donors to make contributions that have power now as well as for future generations.

“The Medical Center-WKU Health Sciences Complex benefits the hospital and university with much needed educational space. The community also reaps the benefits as this facility helps advance healthcare in Southcentral Kentucky by providing highly educated and trained healthcare professionals.”
