As Central Texas’ largest clinical educational facility, the Clinical Education Center (CEC) at Brackenridge plays a critical role in healthcare education. It hosts bioskills labs where physicians can learn new procedures and be trained on using new medical devices. It also has a medical library, conference rooms and computer labs.
The CEC supports the future of care in Central Texas in many ways. The space and resources support learning among nursing and medical students who have never delivered care in a live setting, as well as experienced clinical staff looking for operational improvements in the patient experience or an innovative environment to test new devices.
The CEC is the result of a powerhouse academic collaboration involving the Seton Healthcare Family and area education leaders. Seton has educational partnerships with Austin Community College, Concordia University and Texas Tech University, whose students regularly use the CEC. With the opening of Dell Medical School at The University of Texas in 2016, Seton envisions growing these relationships while exploring new opportunities to play a greater role in medical education.
