About the cnter


The education and health sectors have received the attention of the government because they play an essential role in sustainable development. With the expansion of medical systems and the establishment of medical cities, the training needs of the hands-on cadres in the medical field, in general, cannot be provided by traditional methods. This calls for the development of innovative learning and training methods. King Abdulaziz University has established the Clinical Skills and Simulation Center (CSSC) to provide the ideal environment for fostering effective health training aligned with international standards to provide training programs and a distinctive research environment for students and medical and health professionals. The Center aims to ensure the safety of patients and to reduce medical errors. CSSC is a state-of-the-art training center that can be used as a specialized facility for training health professionals including medical students, doctors, nurses, and other healthcare professionals, and evaluating participants through patient diagnostics and education models that include virtual patients and electronic dolls for high precision simulation. It is a training and research center under the supervision of the University Vice-Presidency for Development. In coordination with the healthcare faculties and the university hospital, the center trains the working health cadres and provides the appropriate educational environment for students in the healthcare faculties and doctors in the graduate programs. Using different learning models that include simulation techniques, i.e., virtual patients and electronic models for high precision simulation, the Center also participates in research activities related to innovation and simulation in the health field with the participation of researchers from various relevant disciplines.
