Simulation is an educational method that replicates the hospital environment or the Family Medicine consultation.
The UHS uses it in its health care program to encourage students to actively and progressively learn professional skills and behaviors. In keeping with its strategic plan, the University is implementing this method, by including it in the curriculum together with Trainings of Trainers. It is also significantly investing in equipment and premises to fully integrate simulation in the students' learning process.
- For the 1st cycle, semiology and clinical skill are the priority subjects to include simulation.
- During the 2nd, it is mainly used to learn basic medical procedures and reflexes and first aid measures.
- The 3rd cycle focuses on medical simulation scenarios, emergency cases, reasoning and decision making.
Simulation-based objectives at each learning level
- At the initial stage, the students will develop their basic skills.
- Then, trained young professionals will be able to use them and work in teams.
- Finally, this education method is aimed at improving the quality and safety of care they provide to their patients.
