Lockheed Martin has contributed three simulation training equipment to the University of Central Florida’s College of Nursing.
The three high-fidelity mannequin simulators will help UCF’s undergraduates prepare for clinical practice with real-life scenarios that test their ability to communicate with, examine and diagnose patients, the university said Sept. 2.
The donation also included IV catheter training kits and medical supplies.
“Simulation saves money, and training saves lives,” said Jon Rambeau, Lockheed Martin vice president and general manager for training and logistics.
“We are proud to be a longstanding partner with UCF in advancing training and innovation right here in Central Florida,” he added.
Lockheed and UCF’s relationship spans two decades, beginning with a collaboration that launched the Lockheed Martin/UCF Academy for Mathematics and Sciences in 1992.
