Who we are
Welcome to the Bristol Medical Simulation Centre (BMSC), a unique facility delivering expert multidisciplinary healthcare training. BMSC is part of the University Hospitals Bristol and Weston NHS Foundation Trust (UHBW).
At BMSC we use a variety of interactive human patient simulators and manikins to give clinicians the opportunity to learn, rehearse and perfect procedures from the simple to the highly complex.
Optimising patient safety and quality of care through effective simulation in healthcare
To be world leaders in simulation development, delivery, research and innovation
“Very well organised day, staff all very friendly and approachable. I felt I could ask/contribute without difficulty.”
“Overall an excellent course which I will recommend to others. Has made me feel more comfortable with the thought of having to use some of the equipment in a real situation.”
“Brilliant course, great structure, well organised, all very relevant”
Excellence in POC training/innovative practice
We hope our example will allow to change the way medical professionals are trained in their own work environment.
