An Introduction to Medical Simulation

For centuries, most trainee doctors and surgeons served their apprenticeships by shadowing more experienced practitioners. The famous ‘see one, do one, teach one’ model was thought to be the best way to prepare inexperienced surgeons for the operating room. But it also meant trainees were often required to perform ‘live’ procedures on patients before they were ready.

Simulation creates endless opportunities for practice and instills greater confidence in trainees. It also allows trainers to shorten the learning curve and introduce uniformity into training programs, ensuring mandatory standards of proficiency are met.

From Manikins to Virtual Reality – Understanding the Range of Medical Simulators

Simulation is an essential part of medical training. But simulation tools have evolved considerably over time, with the most basic anatomical models replaced by state-of-the-art simulators that use data science and virtual reality to create computer-generated environments that fully immerse trainees in the learning process.

Our free white paper looks at the various simulation devices that are available to help teach the next generation of medical professionals. We look at the features, benefits, and things to consider across a range of simulation tools


Saving Money With Simulation

It is broadly accepted that simulation provides many benefits in healthcare education, but some facilities are reluctant to incorporate it into their training programs due to concerns over costs.

Now, for the first time, extensive research has shown that the use of simulation in healthcare education can actually significantly reduce costs, as well as improving trainee proficiency.
