Simulation has long been integral to clinical teaching in medical education, replicating real-world scenarios for practical experience and skill development. Factors driving its use include limited clinical placements, patient safety concerns, and enhanced readiness for real-world situations. Tailored learning is possible, and dangerous or unique clinical scenarios can be replicated. This workshop covers scenario creation, moulage application, simulated patient training, and scenario conduct.


  • To recognise the theory of simulation in health-profession education.
  • To develop a good simulation scenario for students at various levels.
  • To conduct a basic simulation teaching session for students at various levels.
  • To develop confidence to conduct a simulation-based session.
