Prof. Dr. Patrick Tan Kee Seng has written an article regarding the utilisation of clinical simulation facility and programmes which focus on patient safety and how it enhances the effectiveness of clinical teaching involving real patients. The advancement in technology, especially in healthcare-related education and the knowledge and expertise in clinical simulation, has made it possible for educators and students worldwide to embrace the challenges created by the “new norms in education” during the pandemic.
AIMST very own Clinical Skills Centre was established as an avenue for medical students to use mannequins and human simulators, to acquire supervised clinical skills training and practice procedures necessary for clinical competency.
