About Us

At the Center for Experiential and Applied Learning (CEAL), we believe the best way to learn a new clinical procedure or method is to experience hands-on training. Experts are brought together to deliver hands-on experience using the latest in technology and educational methods. Partners in industry, government agencies, medical organizations and health care institutions are assisted in learning new procedures, improving the use of medical devices and instruments, testing and assessing new models of clinical care, developing new strategies for care and working better as teams.

Based at the internationally recognized Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, the CEAL has access to the latest in technology and nationally and internationally recognized clinical and research faculty. By using applied learning with tabletop task trainers, fresh human tissue, synthetic tissue and high fidelity patient simulations, our partners achieve their missions to improve patient care outcomes.
