Institute for Medical Simulation & Education

Singapore General Hospital (SGH) is the largest and oldest hospital in Singapore. It offers a comprehensive range of specialist diagnosis services and serves as one of the teaching and researching hospitals in Singapore.

In March 1999, SGH opened the Institute for Medical Simulation & Education (IMSE) as a venue for basic skills training.

Since 2008, IMSE has incorporated the use of simulation mannequins for training. This is currently conducted within a “mini-hospital” suite including a simulated Operating Theatre, simulated intensive care units and communication laboratories. Simulation training offers the participants a hands-on experience by exposing them to a variety of scenarios.

The programmes are comprehensive, catering to the demands of varying healthcare professionals. These courses are conducted within a controlled setting and participants are able to practise and develop their skills and procedures within a simulation training environment, without compromising on the quality and safety of patient care.

The Institute’s mission is to “improve patient safety through experiential learning, simulation and educational technology” and its vision is to be the regional leader for simulation-based clinical training.

The program will start from 3pm until 4.30pm. There will be a video presentation and visits to Surgical Simulation Lab, ICU Lab, OT Lab & Control, tea reception at Q&A session.
