Rosalind Franklin University Awarded $8.1 Million for a Virtual Health System To Train Talent

Rosalind Franklin University has been awarded $8.1 million in funds by the Illinois Board of Higher Education’s Independent Colleges Capital Investment Grant Program to bolster existing training infrastructure, including renovation of general clinical skills labs, modernization of the gross anatomy lab and purchase of state-of-the-art simulation equipment. The IBHE grant is a great example of how RFU is partnering across sectors — government, education, industry and technology — and with community-focused organizations to provide equitable care and workforce development. The planned 20,000-square-foot simulation center and virtual health system will integrate novel training methods, emerging health technologies and artificial intelligence to advance patient safety and prepare an interprofessional healthcare workforce for a rapidly changing and increasingly complex healthcare landscape.
