The Simulation Suite Experience:

Students on this placement will have the unique opportunity to gain experience in a state-of-the-art UK hospital. We use an NHS simulation suite where our Doctors control the learning environment. This suite includes realistic mannequins, 3D computer graphics and video feedback that enables students to work through emergencies together and gain experience as close as possible the actual role and life of a Doctor.

Students are coached on how to deal with emergency situations and will build up to running several simulation emergency situations themselves.

The Medic Insight Day is an exciting and challenging environment supported by the Medical Projects team aiming to deliver amazing learning experiences to students.
