NEW CUTTING EDGE EQUIPMENT UNVEILED
The ICENI Centre values its position as a key leader in medical simulation training and in March this year completed an upgrade of its Simulation Suite – giving you the learner access to state of the art augmented and virtual reality training simulators.
The high end technology includes: the Intuitive Da Vinci XI simulation console; Inovus laparoscopy and hysteroscopy simulators; Mentice 7 endovascular VR equipment; EyeSi VR stack and; the Endosim endoscopy trainer.
Attend our courses and you will be able to track your performance, through objective data that measures the level of skill set attained and practice complex technical surgical interventions, in your own time, either at home (using the Inovus box trainer) or at the ICENI Centre.
Consultant Greg Wynn, Lead Clinical Director of the ICENI Centre, said: “We are delighted that we have been able to purchase this fantastic augmented reality simulation and virtual reality training equipment and are thrilled to have begun using it at the ICENI Centre. We are one of a small handful of centres in the UK to have invested in this specialist kit, which will play a vital role in keeping us at the cutting edge and maintaining the ICENI Centre’s brand prestige.
“Technical skills simulation has always been an incredibly important element of the training pathway for our clinicians, but previously had to be assessed by observing the learner as they worked. This equipment will allow us to measure performance much more objectively while also helping learners to map their own development and see how quickly they are progressing to the level required to venture into the clinical arena”.
Advance your clinical career with us.
A programme of first class courses in general surgery, obstetrics & gynaecology, vascular, cardiology, radiology, ophthalmology and nursing, using the cutting edge equipment, will commence in the Autumn – follow us on Twitter for updates – @ICENICentre
