All students deserve the opportunity to learn through the most effective methods.  Utilizing simulation-based methods for training distance students who are seeking careers in health professions is a challenge. Placing students into realistic simulated environments is not only possible, it is feasible at the RHIC Simulation Center. With the use of state-of-the-art technology, the RHIC has developed a wide-variety of opportunities for online students to participate in simulations at the facility. The use of segway-based telepresence robots has allowed students from across the world, including those in Europe and Asia to be part of events at the RHIC.
