About Us


Formed in 1998, the University of Dundee Clinical Skills Centre has been at the front of clinical skills training in healthcare disciplines for over a decade. Undergraduate students from the Schools of Medicine, Nursing and Dentistry use our facilities to acquire a wide range of healthcare skills, and return to have their competence confirmed in a series of OSCE examinations. Postgraduate activity, from a variety of disciplines, includes procedural training, training for extended roles and support for healthcare professionals with performance problems.  Educational activities are wide ranging, from simple part task trainers and interactions with our volunteer simulated patients to immersive environments provided in the Dow Simulation Suite. Our activities are supervised by experienced and knowledgeable trainers from a variety of clinically relevant backgrounds, and we pass on the experience and ability of our trainers through a variety of short courses, and a Masters degree in Simulation Based Medical Education.
