Centre for Simulation

At the Centre of Simulation, we are dedicated to providing a realistic and immersive learning environment for healthcare professionals, students and researchers.

Our state-of-the-art simulation facilities are designed to replicate real-life medical scenarios, allowing participants to practice and enhance their clinical skills in a safe and controlled setting. By utilising high-fidelity mannequins, virtual reality technology and task trainers, we offer a wide range of simulation experiences to suit various healthcare disciplines.

Our Objectives:

  1. Education and Training: We offer comprehensive simulation-based training programmes for healthcare professionals, students and residents. These programmes aim to improve clinical competencies, teamwork, communication, and decision-making skills in a realistic and risk-free environment.
  2. Research and Innovation: We actively engage in research and innovation to advance the field of healthcare simulation. Through our research projects, we aim to identify best practices, evaluate the effectiveness of simulation-based training and develop new simulation methodologies.
  3. Interprofessional Collaboration: We promote interprofessional collaboration by providing opportunities for healthcare professionals from different disciplines to train together. This collaborative approach enhances communication and teamwork, leading to improved patient outcomes and safety.
  4. Continuous Professional Development: We offer a range of professional development courses and workshops for healthcare professionals seeking to enhance their skills and knowledge in specific areas. These courses cover a wide range of topics, including emergency medicine, ENT, obstetrics and more.
  5. Community Engagement: We actively engage with the local community by organising outreach programmes and hosting events to promote healthcare education and awareness. Through these initiatives, we aim to enhance public understanding of healthcare practices and improve health outcomes.

Whether you are a healthcare professional looking to enhance your skills, a student seeking immersive learning experiences, or a researcher interested in simulation-based studies, we are here to support your needs.
