The Advanced Surgical Technology and Education Center (ASTEC) on the Inova Fairfax Medical Campus is the most technologically advanced surgery simulation facility in the region. The center provides surgeons, surgical residents and surgical teams unsurpassed real-time surgical training and education to improve skills, allow for observation and evaluation, and provide teambuilding opportunities to benefit patient care and safety.


The Inova Center for Advanced Medical Simulation (ICAMS) provides a safe, state-of-the-art environment for a multitude of advanced simulation and teamwork trainings. This 12,000 sq. ft. center is one of the most robust in the region. ICAMS offers simulation services to all of Inova – everything from low-fidelity procedural simulations, high-fidelity patient simulations, and standardized patient encounters to communication, teamwork, workflow and handoff training.
