Clinical simulation training is increasingly used to introduce clinicians to new operative and interpersonal skills and techniques to help keep them up to date and assess competence.Read More
Health Education England, Wessex is keen to create an effective network of simulation trainers and resources.
The School of Health Sciences and Social Work are proud to offer leading edge simulation facilities and equipment to support our students learning. The Centre for Simulation in Healthcare (CSiH) is a newly refurbished facility that includes a large fully flexible space that can be anything from an intensive care department through to twelve individual clinical bays.
We have a fully operating theatre, ultrasound laboratory, one-bedroomed flat, skills laboratory, operational x-ray facility, DEXA scanner, ambulance and virtual reality trainer. We are also proud to boast our optometry laboratory with twelve individual, fully functional bays.
These flexible, high fidelity, evidence based learning technologies enhance the opportunities to engage in real-life simulated scenarios and helps us to support our students to become safer and more effective practitioners. These facilities also enable us to test students in unusual and time critical emergencies, which do not often arise in placement and therefore ensure an objective and equitable learning experience for all.
We employ specialist technologies in our teaching such as haptic devices, treatment planning systems, eye-tracking technologies and ‘tagging’ cameras ensuring the most up to date, appropriate and enviable experience for our students.

The Dorchester Simulation Lab is a small but highly successful unit that regularly runs over 20 simulation courses for all grades of staff.
We use modern SimMan3G, SimJunior & SimBaby mannekins and a variety of task-trainers including chest drain, central catheter, epidural / lumbar puncture models and a Simendo Pro2 laparoscopic simulator.
Training is overseen by the Anaesthetic and Resuscitation departments and the lab is staffed daily by a full-time technician.
