Established in 1987, the Simulation and Integrative Learning Institute (SAIL) was one of the first standardized patient-based clinical performance assessment centers in the world. For 29 years, they have facilitated technology-based and human-based simulation experiences for thousands of healthcare students and professionals. With patient safety as one of their driving motivators, SAIL works to design simulation for the development of comprehensive healthcare professionals.

Aligning with the UI College of Medicine’s mission to uplift the health of our community, SAIL’s vision is to develop patient-partnered simulation strategies for the entire healthcare community of practice, including patients, families, and more. SAIL was formerly known as the Graham Clinical Performance Center, until  its transition to SAIL in 2019.
