Doc for a Day

Students in OR practicing on a mannequin

“I’m not a doctor, but I got to play one at the simulation centre.” ~future participant

University of Ottawa Skills and Simulation Centre (uOSSC) is a state-of-the-art training facility for healthcare  professionals. Specializing in both technical skills training and  learning how to manage medical emergencies through theatre-based simulation, the uOSSC is helping the health professionals of today and tomorrow provide world-class quality care to the patients of Ottawa. But why should the docs and nurses have all the fun practicing?  Everyone has sat at home watching ER or Gray’s Anatomy and thought,   “I can do that!”
