UC Davis is renowned for cross-disciplinary research and teaching that draw upon 100 academic majors; 87 graduate programs; and professional schools in business, education, law, medicine, nursing, and veterinary medicine. The campus connects the population-dense San Francisco Bay and Sacramento urban areas, natural resources in the Delta and the Sierra Nevada, and Central Valley agriculture. CITRIS and the Banatao Institute, UC Davis brings expertise in engineering, nanoscience, law, and medicine to bear on complex challenges related to food, health, the environment, and society.
Just north of campus at the UC Davis Health System in Sacramento, the Center for Health and Technology and the Center for Virtual Care improve the quality of healthcare through education, training, and specialty care services. This 52,000 square-foot joint facility offers HD-equipped classrooms, four telehealth training exam rooms, an inpatient room, outpatient clinic, and a technology demonstration suite. The Center for Virtual Care features a full-size emergency room trauma bay, operating room, inpatient unit, six-bay simulation education area, exam rooms, and sophisticated training mannequins. The adjacent media production studio makes on-site development and distribution of instructional media possible. These advanced training centers connect UC researchers and practitioners with remote clinics across the state of California, enabling the delivery of life-saving care and innovative IT solutions.
