Clinical Skills Development Service (CSDS) presents Simulympics

Brush up on your crisis management and emergency clinical skills in this live healthcare simulation

Simulympics is a competition between two teams of doctors in training;  they race against each other and against the clock through simulated clinical skills stations and scenarios.  Not only are these clinical athletes pitting their skills against each other, but our judges are also assessing teamwork, speed and clinical accuracy.  Judged by a panel of simulation and clinical experts, only one team will be victorious!

An expert judging panel from CSDS will put them through their paces. The session will be played up on the big screen and a final assessment provided at the end.
