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

CAPE is housed in an 18,000-square-foot space inside the Education I tower. This space includes 15 examination rooms, 3 consult rooms, and 4 high fidelity simulation rooms that can function as an OR, Emergency Room, hospital room, ICU, labor and delivery suite and apartment. All rooms have video and audio recording capability. The high fidelity simulation rooms have two-way mirrors with adjacent control rooms. We also have 2 classrooms 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.
