About the Center
The University of Illinois has launched the Jump Simulation Center with a generous $10 million gift from Jump Trading, with the mission of training a new type of doctor, uniquely equipped to transform health care. Located on the Urbana campus, the new center provides all the simulation needs of the new Carle Illinois College of Medicine, the first medical school in the nation focused—from the beginning—at the intersection of engineering and medicine. The Jump Simulation Center at Illinois is the culmination of several years of planning. In 2014, a $62.5 million gift established the Jump Applied Research Center for Community Health through Engineering and Simulation (Jump ARCHES), a partnership between Jump Simulation and Education Center at OSF HealthCare in Peoria and HCESC at Illinois' College of Engineering. Jump ARCHES is creating new and innovative simulation technologies is transforming the way healthcare professionals learn. The Jump Simulation Center is located in the lower-level of the newly renovated Everitt Laboratory, which also serves as home to Department of Bioengineering at Illinois.
