Simulation-based education is at the heart of the curriculum. Our mission is to support successful, evidence-based health simulation education, for all our relevant healthcare professional courses, through innovation and the creation of sustainable pathways for the future workforce.

Our healthcare students are supported in developing clinical skills and simulation-based learning so that they can develop and rehearse their skills in realistic but safe scenarios. By working with external NHS partners, such as University Hospitals Dorset NHS Foundation Trust, Dorset HealthCare and NHS England, we aim to become a centre of excellence for simulation in Dorset.

We have an active and enthusiastic Faculty Simulation Group which meets monthly to discuss new and creative ways of embedding simulation into curricula and supporting practice partners.
