Horizon Centre and Simulation Zone
The Simulation and Enhanced Learning module of the programme will be delivered at the Horizon Centre, a new innovation, education and research facility based at Torbay Hospital. The Horizon Centre provides an environment where people can explore new ideas, learn new techniques, and observe and reflect on clinical practice together. Within this facility, the Enhancing Clinical Safety and Excellence through Learning (ECSEL) Simulation Zone provides a range of learning environments including two fully equipped clinical immersion studios, a self-directed learning suite and six other simulation spaces of varying levels of fidelity. Individuals and multi-professional teams use these spaces to engage with a range of high tech manikins, virtual reality part-task trainers and other simulation-based learning experiences, in order to master new procedures and develop their clinical practice.
The remaining taught modules will be delivered at the Schools headquarters in the John Bull Building, Plymouth Science Park, Plymouth where you’ll have access to state of the art facilities in the Clinical Skills Resource Centre (CSRC) and the Peninsula Simulation Suite at Derriford Hospital. These facilities provide a vast array of set-ups used for teaching of technical and non-technical skills to undergraduates and postgraduates.
