The University of Kansas Medical Center is planning to build a center that would allow prospective surgeons to learn in a setting that looks like a surgery center.

Two doctors have each contributed $100,000 to help jumpstart plans for the medical simulation center.

Currently, students at the medical center train in separate classrooms, rather than one setting.

The proposed simulation center would be equipped with mannequins and equipment representing a variety of medical conditions.

Dr. James Kindscher, chairman of the Department of Anesthesiology, donated $100,000 to the project. Dr. Thomas O'Farrell, and his wife, Nancy, of Prairie Village, also contributed $100,000.
