Medical Simulation Training Center | UAG School of Medicine


The Center for Simulated Patient Care provides students with the opportunity to immerse themselves in real-life inpatient spaces, operating rooms, and ambulatory settings through an experiential approach. This innovative teaching method utilizes simulation-based education, which has been proven to reinforce clinical knowledge, improve team communication, and enhance decision-making skills.

The center's full-body simulation mannequins provide real-time physiological responses and feedback, allowing students to interact with advanced technology and develop the necessary skills in a safe and controlled environment. The use of simulation-based education provides a powerful tool for hands-on training, preparing learners for real clinical settings and patient interactions by promoting critical thinking and teamwork.

We have a wide range of simulators of different fidelities, from the most basic to high fidelity simulators, used depending on the grade of difficulty of the simulated educational technique, learning goals, and abilities to be practiced.



In addition to the educational process, the Center allows for the research of new educational pedagogic tools and didactics to improve medical education and promote innovation. Furthermore, the utilization of the Center with various levels of simulators and scenarios can aid in the improvement and development of new diagnostic and therapeutic techniques, tools, and approaches for a diverse range of pathologies and diseases. This, in turn, assists specialists in advancing medicine and other healthcare-related sciences.


Simulation-based education improves the confidence of medical students and enhances their abilities, skills, and knowledge integration through various techniques. It provides the opportunity to create safe environments for clinical scenarios that enable our students to learn from their errors without causing harm to another human being.


Simulation-based education, with its various didactic techniques, enables the development of collaborative work skills, professionalism, and interprofessional communication while integrating scientific knowledge with medical propaedeutics, marking the initiation of medical practice. As teams collaborate during simulated scenarios and with different types of simulators, peers must address each other to enhance the targeted skills and abilities for each workshop. They communicate their successful and appropriate techniques, providing feedback on areas for improvement, all under the guidance of a professor. This practice facilitates a more effective development of students' learning processes, preparing them for clerkships and future practice. These educational techniques and technologies can also be integrated into the lifelong learning of every physician as part of continuing medical education.
