Simulation Centre Networking Project
We are inviting all Simulation Centres throughout Europe, both large and small to present their centre and the courses run for inclusion in a Simulation Centre Network. This is accessible to everyone via our website and we believe will provide:
- better communication with Simulation enthusiasts.
- information sharing between Simulation Centres.
- an updated list of Simulation Centres in Europe.

The Centre for Medical Simulation and Training of the Irkutsk Regional Clinical Hospital implements 27 simulation courses: 7 on neonatology, 16 on obstetrics, 2 on laparoscopy, and 2 on ultrasound diagnostics. It is one of the largest multi-disciplinary hospitals.
Karadeniz Technical University Medical Education and Training Simülation Center’s aim is to provide basic and advanced simulation-based training to maximize the quality of healthcare service. Our centre, which has a modern and technologically strong infrastructure, has a secretariat, cafeteria, men's and women's dressing room, meeting room, standardized patient preparation room, clinical skills laboratory, general surgery room, briefing and debriefing rooms and trainer rooms. In addition, there are an emergency unit, pediatric emergency unit, delivery unit, intensive care unit, and newborn unit with control rooms. There are medical gas systems in the form of oxygen, air and vacuum in each unit. A comprehensive recording is provided with 3 digital cameras and 1 microphone for each unit. In the control rooms, there is a single-sided glass and headphones that allow the instructors to monitor and listen to the units.
KOÜSİM has been prepared in a virtual hospital setup in a closed area of 1151 square meters in the new outpatient clinic building of Kocaeli University Hospital. The center includes a three-bed emergency department, ambulance and accident/home environment, maternity ward and neonatal area, two-bed adult and two-bed pediatric wards, a clinical skills laboratory, a three-dimensional (3D) virtual anatomy classroom, a virtual reality (VR) room, and eight simulated student outpatient clinics, and basic skills lab. The staff of the center consists of an anesthesia specialist medical educator, a nurse instructor, a biomedical engineer, and an anesthesia technician. The center also features high-fidelity emergency patient and nursing simulators, pediatric simulators, childbirth simulators, and all the necessary medical devices and equipment for emergency departments, ambulances, and wards, as well as a wide variety of skill models. Another important infrastructure of the center is a comprehensive education software and recording system that supports various measurement and evaluation capabilities, with the ability to remotely control simulators, and the ability to record high-quality audio and video in all simulated environments. KOÜSİM offers a variety of training programs that span from the first year of medical education through graduation and into post-graduate studies. High-fidelity emergency service simulations for interns, pediatric resuscitation, neonatal resuscitation, advanced and basic life support training for interns, cardiac and respiratory examination practices, and simulation applications of basic medical skills specified in the National Core Education Program are included in our training programs. In addition, our center conducts objective structured clinical examinations (OSCE) and objective structured practical examinations (OSPE) preferred in pre-graduation medical education. Communication skills training sessions are conducted with simulated patients (SP). In addition, our center continues to offer courses organized by specialist physician associations as part of post-graduate medical education.
The simulation centre (LabForSIMS) was officially opened in the Paris Sud Medical School in 2012. LabForSIMS is now actively involved in almost all fields of simulation, including patient-healthcare provider relations, high-fidelity simulation and CRM, and in the development of serious games for many medical and non-medical specialties. LabForSIMS is included in the training curricula of more than 2000 students annually, and it has developed research activities with both technological (i.e. augmented reality) and educational aims.
