World Class Resources
MITIE has become a center for innovative ideas and technological advances that offers an extensive array of resources for training, research and device development.

Function and Purpose

The MITIE research and training spaces are housed under one roof. This enables the logical, progressive development of collaborative research and training efforts. The learning process begins with the development of new technology or procedural techniques by scientists and physicians working in the research core of MITIE. These advances evolve through the use of a simulated patient care environment. Once the efficacy of a technology or procedure is proven, it can be disseminated to practicing physicians in the MITIE training area and MedPresence room.
