Prof Fatimah Lateef
Co-Director (SingHealth), SingHealth Duke-NUS Institute of Medical Simulation (SIMS) 

The SingHealth Duke-NUS Institute of Medical Simulation (SIMS) is Singapore’s largest simulation facility consisting a comprehensive range of simulation modalities, cutting-edge technology and training programmes. With the strong partnership we have developed over the years, around the region and internationally, SIMS now has a bigger umbrella of activities in simulation and education. We believe the collaborative efforts and platforms available will bring us to greater heights and give rise to more opportunities in education and team-based training for healthcare professionals to sharpen their clinical skills. 

We believe that medical simulation is most effective when techniques are drawn from multiple professions and disciplines. With this in mind, SIMS was formed in 2016 to draw on the synergy of collective expertise, curriculum and resources from different simulation centres and professions within the SingHealth Duke-NUS Academic Medical Centre.

SIMS focuses on providing comprehensive multi-disciplinary and team-based learning, and customised programmes to suit the needs of various healthcare professions and levels. Coupled with our rich legacy in clinical education and integrating simulation with research, we are well positioned to be an international leader in simulation-based training and research. 

We invite you to visit our simulation centres and discuss the wide range of educational opportunities and innovation that SIMS can offer. Together, we look forward to advancing the medical education landscape in Singapore by training more healthcare professionals to be confident and competent in their clinical skills, and pushing frontiers in patient safety for better care outcomes.
