Simulation Centre

Washington University of Barbados is aspiring to be one among the
top Medical Universities in the Caribbean.

WUB Simulation Centre

The Medical Simulation Centre at Washington University of Barbados is a new concept in the field of medical education.

A medical simulator, much like a flight simulator for airline pilots, evaluates the ability of a health care professional to handle real-life medical emergencies.

The Medical Simulation Centre uses training manikins to teach healthcare students the skills to manage real-life emergencies.

The centre has a range of more than 100 training manikins, from simple task trainers to the most complex, interactive, computer-based training units such as the SimMan™. These are used to train undergraduate and postgraduate students in the health sciences including medical, dental, nursing and allied health fields.

Not only students of all constituent colleges under the Washington University of Barbados, but others like police personnel, fire fighters, ambulance drivers and the general public are also trained here.

TEACHING METHODOLOGY

The Medical Simulation Centre is the first of its kind in a private Indian university and its teaching methods are unique to medical simulation. Students with relevant theoretical background are given hands-on experience in controlled / clinical conditions, thus reinforcing classroom learning.

Trainers

The Simulation Centre has various trainers to cater to professional services in a variety of fields. High-fidelity simulators such as the SimMan™ can be programmed to test the ability of a student to integrate assessment and diagnostic skills into decision making.
