Simulation Center for Nurses Department
The Mono-profile Medical Simulation Centre is based at the University of Zielona Gora, Poland – Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences and is dedicated for nursing students. We started in 2017 with public tenders and renovations of parts of the building. In January 2018 we organized the first basic courses in medical simulation methodology for nurses, who are presently teaching in our simulation centre.
MCSM comprises one high fidelity lab with three patient simulators (adult, child and infant),
a technical skills lab, a basic nursing skills lab, a debrief room, BLS and ALS training labs and two OSCE labs. Our team consists of 4 medical simulation instructors, 2 technicians and 8 educators trained in the methodology of medical simulation.
In 2018 and the first quarter of 2019, we organized 12 courses: introduction to medical simulation, OSCE, and low and medium medical simulation. We have been teaching our students since February 2019.
On daily basis, members of our team improve their skills by participating in conferences (SESAM 2017, Medical Education Forum in Krakow, International Conference organized by The Military Medical Training Centre in Lodz). We have also organized the first EXPO Medical Simulation Conference in Zielona Góra. It took place in 2018. This event will constantly be present in our annual calendar. We are looking forward to the next in December.MCSM is cooperating with The Military Medical Training Centre in Lodz, Collegium Medicum of UJ in Krakow, The Medical Simulation Centre in Gdansk, The Medical Simulation Centre in Poznan, and Simulation Centres in Kielce and Rzeszow. This year we are starting to organize the competitions for medical simulations.
