MEDSIM WORK EXPERIENCE PLUS
ALL THIS IN ONE PLACE
Patient contact is at the centre of medicine, which is why Medsim ensures that you gain that contact. Working in small supervised teams, you will have the opportunity to first watch, learn, then engage with patients for yourself. Communication skills and empathy are taught practised and applied as you and your team work to diagnose your patents, identifying a range of symptoms and then choosing from a set of conditions to reach your diagnosis.
Medicine is ‘hands-on’, and alongside of essential problem solving and analytical skills, it is also necessary that a future doctor be able to perform a number of manual skills from suturing through to the taking of blood. For this reason Medsim organises a range of hands-on practical workstations. Fully supervised clinical stations provide the amazing opportunity to gain practical experience first hand.
A central feature of the Medsim experience is the ability for you to perform your own simulated endoscopic (keyhole) surgery. Fully supervised and working with your own surgical team, you will have the opportunity to use actual endoscopic cameras, and endoscopic surgical instruments as you perform a simulated surgical procedure. This is an amazing opportunity to to gain valuable experience.
Working with other doctors, nurses, physiotherapist and others, modern medicine is about team work. A central feature of the Medsim experience is that you will work in small teams to solve clinical problems, make patient diagnosis and more. In addition to the timetabled sessions you will be on-call all of the time and can expect to be called out to a range of simulated emergencies requiring quick thinking, judgement and above all else team work.
The technology that you will experience at Medsim is currently being used for both training and surgery in a range of top medical schools, mostly in the United States. Whilst at Medsim you will have the incredible opportunity to sample the future of medicine and surgery for yourself. We will be demonstrating the technology to a number of medical schools, but you have will the chance to use it.
