Message from the Assistant Dean

Simulation is essential for training competent healthcare professionals. By recreating realistic clinical scenarios for the purpose of education, healthcare simulation allows learners to safely practice and translate their theoretical book knowledge into tangible bedside clinical skills without risking patient harm. Healthcare simulation has repeatedly been proven, in multiple healthcare professions, to significantly improve the attitudes, skills and behaviours of individuals and teams. This effectiveness has been widely recognized, as several healthcare profession training programs now mandate simulation-based education activities in their accredited curricula.
