Medical Simulation Centre

SimulationTraining in critical situations and clinical procedures has benefited from our links to the Bristol Medical Simulation Centre (BMSC), across the road from us in the University Hospitals Bristol Education Centre.

At the BMSC, the first centre of its kind in the UK, critical procedures that might be employed in the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit or in theatre can be rehearsed using virtual models. Computer-controlled mannequins play the part of patients, while training staff conduct scenarios designed to test and improve clinicians reactions to pressure and unexpected situations.

The simulator is particularly valuable for practising very rare events or unusual procedures, so clinicians are prepared when a childs health is at risk. test
