The simulation classes of the Educational and Scientific Institute of Education Quality of the Kharkiv National Medical University

In order to ensure the current state of practical training of students for the development of practical skills, typical skills and manipulative techniques in accordance with existing cross-cutting programmes of training specialists, curricula and requirements of educational and qualification characteristics of the students of the Kharkiv National Medical University in 2015, simulation classes were created for the implementation of simulation training method with a wide range of simulators for working out practical skills with a high level of realism, computer and virtual simulation of various clinical situations is a new direction in the modern school of training highly skilled medical personnel of the higher and middle level.


The purpose of this direction is to create organizational, teaching and methodological conditions for improving the quality of training, retraining and professional development of doctors, as well as for the development of professional competence of specialists of the Ukrainian health care system.


Advantages of simulation training:

- clinical experience in a virtual environment without risk for the patient;

- objective assessment of the achieved level of skill;

- unlimited number of repetitions for skills training;

- treatment of rare and life-threatening pathologies;

- a part of the functions of the teacher a virtual simulator takes on;

- reduced stress during the first independent manipulations;

- development of both individual skills and abilities of team interaction.



Types of exercises based on the simulation center of the educational-scientific institute of the KhNMU

1. Individual training on mannequins (namely, conducting practical classes where students work out skills under the direction of a teacher independently).

2. Modeling of situational problems (namely, multi- step-by-step situations when a student is practicing practical skills according to standard medical aid schemes).

3. Teamwork skills in clinical situations (in this case students learn the process of co-ordinated work in the team).

4. Distance learning.

5. Teaching by the demonstration of educational films created on the same mannequins with a different complex pathology.

6. Interactive learning.

7. Integration of teaching-educational complex into the lecture process.

8. Inter-departmental integration (namely, the simultaneous work of two or more departments on the same mannequin in the form of work in a virtual operating system such as the Department of Anesthesiology and the Department of Surgery).


Up to date, five educational virtual clinics have been set up already at the educational and research institute of the KhNMU in the following areas: pediatrics, surgery, obstetrics and gynecology, therapy, emergency medicine, equipped with exercises machines and simulators. This equipment is actively used in the educational process during practical classes with students.
