Clarkson College Interprofessional Learning Center Skills Lab

Schemmer is dedicated to creating leading edge facilities

It's safe to say that when you go to the doctor, need surgery or have an appointment with a physical therapist, we all hope we're getting the best care with the most knowledgeable professionals. Ensuring our future health care professionals are getting a top-notch education requires that they have access to top-notch learning centers. Moreover, once they're ready to move on and start their careers, there must be clinics and hospitals for these professionals to work that allow for:

  • safe,
  • efficient,
  • accommodating,
  • and comfortable care to our communities.

Here at Schemmer, we pride ourselves on being involved in cutting edge healthcare and teaching facilities. From the Grinnell Regional Medical Center Emergency Department and the UNMC Dentistry Clinic Renovation to the impressive UNO Biomechanics Research Building and Addition, Schemmer is dedicated to providing the best for our clients and our community.

Project Spotlight: Clarkson College Interprofessional Learning Center Skills Lab

Our most recent project in this area is the Interprofessional Learning Center Skills Lab at Clarkson College. Schemmer provided architecture and interior design services for the $2.2M overhaul of the previous Skills and Simulation Labs at Clarkson College. Doubling the size to span the entire floor, this lab is dedicated to cultivating student success and leading the institution to the next level of excellence in health care education.

The renovation consists of:

  • four exam rooms,
  • six hospital patient beds with working headwalls,
  • six exam tables,
  • two classrooms,
  • two faculty offices and
  • a nurse's station.

As a result, students are now able to practice within the most realistic scenarios to prepare them for their future roles as health care professionals. An additional area is set up as an operating room that allows students to practice within a realistic surgical space, complete with hospital-grade handwashing sinks and overhead lighting. The Interprofessional Learning Center also includes a fabricated home setting and a debriefing room with video technology for students to review their techniques and improve their skills.
