Powers-Sanchez Interactive Center and The Linder Learning Center

Possibilities: Realized

Combining a desirable location with cutting-edge technology, USCAP’s Linder Learning Center and Powers-Sanchez Interactive Center are revolutionizing the way we learn and communicate.

Located in Palm Springs, California, this beautifully designed, state-of-the-art learning environment offers a conference theater and production studio where groups can host, record, edit, and share with a global audience every sound and sight of their meetings, lectures, product launches, and training programs.

USCAP, an international organization of pathologists, concieved the Interactive Learning Center as a destination for the world’s top experts to sit shoulder-to-shoulder with their peers and students around a multi-headed scope and share knowledge not only with each other, but also with doctors around the world via live-streams and webcasts. “Pathologists-in-training and experienced practitioners can sit across from an expert pathologist and learn diagnostic criteria, pattern recognition, and the variations in how tissues and cells appear under the microscope,” says Dr. David Kaminsky, USCAP executive vice president. “Pathologists from all over the world can be at the microscope, and we can deliver that content digitally on mobile devices, on demand, and with immediate access. An interactive microscopy laboratory united digitally with a conference center and broadcast studio for the development of sophisticated educational products is unique in America.”

USCAP offers the distinctive lecture theater, meeting and event space, sound stage, and broadcast studio to a variety of businesses and organizations. Likewise, medical organizations can access the microscopy classrooms and take advantage of the ability to broadcast and package the content for distribution.

USCAP’s Linder Learning Center and Powers-Sanchez Interactive Center represent the next generation of learning, information transfer and communication. Imagine the possibilities and realize them here in Palm Springs.
