One of the most important steps in clinical curriculum development is the introduction of simulation based education (SBE) as a coherent and effective teaching and learning practice.
‘Simulation’ is a generic term that refers to an artificial representation of a real-world process to achieve educational goals through experiential learning, whilst remaining contextually appropriate and realistic. Medical simulation is a branch of simulation technology related to education and training in medical fields. It can involve simulated human patients or mannequins in a variety of simulated environment.
Simulation is performed in a situation that emulates a clinical setting aiming to learn the technical skills and competency required for healthcare. Furthermore, it is proposed as a method to bridge the educational gaps among various educational modalities. It is also important to develop technical skills and also non-technical skills such as leadership, communication, situational awareness and clinical decision making.
AGU’s MSSC provides training for inter-professional teams of medical students, caregivers, and clinical staff allowing them to explore, analyze and synthesize their actions to improve performance in real-life situations.
