The center was created in 1998 and moved to the Anschutz Medical Campus in 2001.  

CAPE is now housed in a 30,000-square-foot space inside the Anschutz Health Sciences Building. This space includes 30 patient examination rooms and 5 clinical simulation rooms that can function as an OR, Emergency Room, hospital room, ICU, and labor and delivery suite. All rooms have video and audio recording capability. The clinical simulation rooms have two-way mirrors with adjacent control rooms. We also have 4 large multi-purpose classrooms, 8 debrief/conference type rooms, and a central control room. These can be used to observe any of the simulation spaces during education and assessment activities. The CAPE space allows us to perform small and large scale education and assessment activities using standardized patients and high fidelity mannequins and tools for health profession learners across the spectrum of training.

CAPE is located on the 3rd floor in AHSB. Our main entrance is on the northeast side of the building passed the shared seating area. The closest elevators to the reception is the northwest elevators which can be access through the northwest entrance on Revere Court.
