Accredited by the Society for Simulation in Healthcare (SSH), Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi’s Multidisciplinary Simulation Center is the largest, multidisciplinary, multimodality hospital simulation center in the UAE.

Our primary aim is to advance healthcare education through experiential and reflective learning, resulting in improvement of patient safety and experience.

What is simulation-based education?

It’s an increasingly popular healthcare training system with a focus on experiential learning, in which Caregivers practice real-life clinical scenarios within a controlled environment. Responsive mannequins and virtual reality equipment are used in these scenarios to provide the most authentic patient-Caregiver clinical interactions.

Caregivers practice all types of scenarios, giving them the opportunity to rehearse and perfect new, rare, complex and emergency events before being appraised.

What type of simulators are used?

Human Patient Simulators

We use high-fidelity computerized, interactive mannequins integrated with software to replicate human physiological responses such as breathing and pulses. This allows Caregivers to develop their skills in dealing with a full spectrum of clinical scenarios.

Virtual Reality Simulators

These high-tech virtual reality simulators replicate specific parts and systems of the human body and are used for simulating procedures and surgery. They give instant performance feedback based on real-life reactions.

Task Trainers

Low-tech simulators such as IV task trainers, basic mannequins, airway trainers, and heart and lung sound trainers are used to break down physical tasks and procedures into a series of steps for competency training.

How realistic is the Multidisciplinary Simulation Center?

The Multidisciplinary Simulation Center mirrors the hospital setting to provide an authentic environment for trainees.

The 24,000 sq. ft. center features state-of-the-art audiovisual systems for capturing and reflecting experiential learning, as well as a suite of training rooms which include:

  • Examination rooms

  • Operating rooms

  • Patients rooms

  • Emergency department resuscitation

  • Procedure rooms

  • Intensive care unit

  • Classrooms

  • Debriefing rooms
