In 2018, at the suggestion of Rector S. N. Mamaev, the Academic Council of the University considered positive the issue of creating a department of medical simulation and educational practice on the basis of a training simulation center.











The Department of Medical Simulation and Teaching Practice is located in the new modern seven-storey building of the University at Shamil 44.

The department is deployed in two academic blocks: the first block occupies the area of premises in the educational and laboratory building of the University at Shamil 46 (total area of 500m2), as well as a separate block in the new modern building of the University on two floors, with a total area of 1200 m2.
















Purpose of the department creation

Improving the quality of practical training of students: students, residents, medical cadets in professional retraining and advanced training programs through the use of modern and simulation technologies for mastering and improving practical skills-simulators, phantoms, as well as virtual (computer) simulators that provide high realism of medical interventions and procedures.

“By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest.”

― Confucious (V century BC.)

«Simulation» – a person, a device, efforts to recreate the problem, where the student shall react as he will do in a real situation».

Traditional educational system in its current expression, it is based primarily on knowledge, while in a professional environment a specialist is assessed according to the criteria of skills and abilities. An important advantage of the use of simulation technologies in the educational process is the ability to objectively register the parameters of the doctor’s activities in the aspect of the developed professional skills and abilities. The training task is to process algorithms for emergency care and intensive care in a limited period of time (seconds-minutes). In the simplest form of simulation can be described as an imitation of reality. In the medical education system, simulations are the basis of a number of techniques designed to reproduce clinical situations for the purpose of learning, repetition, evaluation, and research. Simulators range from simple physical models of anatomical structures, to complex devices and mannequins with high mechanical reality and computer control. Simulation technologies allow simulate various clinical situations, including rare clinical scenarios.

Medical Simulation and Accreditation Center Department facilities































Conference hall































Accreditation center and department of medical simulation and training practice are equipped with the latest tools and technologies of training: simulators and robots, simulation mannequins, electronic phantoms, models and other interactive computerized equipment, as well as real medical equipment (ECG, video laringoscope, surgical and obstetric instruments, stethoscopes, tonometers, etc.). On the basis of the Department of Medical Simulation, the training of faculty, students, residents, cadets on the programs of the cycle of professional development and professional retraining with the use of simulation technologies is carried out; Since 2016, the procedure of accreditation of DSMU graduate specialists is taking place. At the Department of Medical Simulation and Educational Practice, practical classes for students of 2-6 courses of medical and pediatric faculties are regularly organized in a systematic manner. At the stage of pre-practical training, students are given the opportunity to work out the skills provided for in the practice program on simulators and simulators, and get the advice of a teacher. Students are also provided with comprehensive methodological support: implementation algorithms, video tutorials and expert assessment sheets for all practical skills are developed and posted on the official website of the university. At the Department of Medical Simulation and Training Practice, to increase the objectivity of evaluating the correctness of performing practical skills on training dummies, the test / exam is conducted using video monitoring on expert assessment sheets (checklists). The teacher, being in another room, evaluates the correctness of the implementation of practical skills by students on a computer monitor, simultaneously filling out sheets of expert assessments, which note compliance with the sequence and correctness of the implementation of the practical skill algorithm. At the Department of Medical Simulation and Educational Practice of DSMU, all practical classes are conducted using debriefing technology, when the process of learning and practicing practical skills is recorded on video cameras, and then broadcast to the debriefing hall for detailed analysis and analysis of students’ mistakes. The Department of Medical Simulation and Educational Practice regularly organizes various competitions, Olympiads, trainings, and master classes. The Practical Skills Competition encourages students to improve their theoretical knowledge and practical skills in providing emergency and emergency emergency medical care; contributes to the development of students’ creativity and interest in the practical activities of the doctor.
