Simulation Lab


The simulation laboratory is situated on the 4th floor of the Medical School campus. The objective of the simulation lab is to enhance both undergraduate and postgraduate students’ decision making, procedural skills training, while improving communication skills and developing leadership qualities in a safe student centered learning environment.

Practical skill learning takes place through the use of task training and high fidelity equipment.  

The simulation laboratory’s video capacity allows facilitators to debrief all simulations, thus promoting reflective learning in students.
