Simulation training is a widely used and proven method in medicine. Its main purpose is to combine theoretical and practical knowledge in a clinically structured, student-centered environment where student practitioners can learn and acquire medical skills.
Simulation Medicine Clinic at Teaching University Geomedi is a structural unit of the Faculty of Medicine and it is equipped with relevant teaching materials (simulation models, medical instruments, computer technologies, etc.). A clinic-like environment enables students to develop clinical skills and feel the responsibility that is characteristic to the clinical situation, discuss anatomical-physiological situations, perform basic medical manipulations using modern medical technologies. Problem-oriented Examination – OSCE (Objectively Structured Clinical Exam) is also conducted here. The OSCE is used to evaluate the clinical competencies of students (clinical skills). During the OSCE, students demonstrate clinical skills using simulation models or standardized patients (people who play the patient’s role).
