Duke-NUS Medical School
The Duke-NUS Medical School is equipped with state-of-the-art educational facilities. This includes an Amphitheatre, classrooms and teaching labs which are equipped to conduct mannequin simulation training.
KK Women's and Children's Hospital
The KK Women's and Children's Hospital Simulation Centre hosts training sessions in crisis management, common emergency scenarios, and rare life threatening conditions. The Simulation Centre has four simulation labs where various pieces of biomedical equipment and facilities are available to mock-up any care area in the hospital. The centre features remarkably lifelike neonatial mannequins and paediatric simulators to provide education in high risk and low volume areas of paediatric acute medicine, critical care, anaesthesia and emergency medicine.
When completed in 2018, the new Sengkang Health, one of Singapore's largest regional hospitals, will be a holistic training ground for medical training with cutting-edged facilities.
