About USF Health & CAMLS

The University of South Florida’s Center for Advanced Medical Learning and Simulation (CAMLS) is one of the world’s largest, free-standing simulation facilities exclusively dedicated to training healthcare professionals. CAMLS is part of the USF Health Downtown Initiative. CAMLS provides simulation experiences for educating students; training health care faculty in simulation education; and preparing health care professionals to acquire, maintain and enhance their clinical practice to meet today’s workforce needs and improve patient care in Tampa Bay, Florida and around the globe. CAMLS is conveniently located in the heart of downtown Tampa, Florida and is open seven days a week to accommodate the numerous demands that challenge today’s domestic and international healthcare providers and researchers.

The CAMLS facility, opened in 2012, is a 90,000-square-foot, three-story facility that provides a state-of-the-art, high-fidelity clinical environment with 60,000 square feet dedicated to surgical skills labs, operating trauma suites, and patient exam rooms, plus more than 25,000 square feet of meeting and conference space. CAMLS specializes in providing a realistic training environment for healthcare providers and can replicate nearly any clinical/medical environment, including the use of virtual and human ‘patients’ (standardized patients) as well as testing resources. Additionally, CAMLS is a world-class meeting and conference center, located steps away from the Tampa Convention Center; Amalie Arena; downtown hotels and lodging; the Tampa Riverwalk; and the emerging Channelside business district.
