Dundee Institute for Healthcare Simulation

The Dundee Institute of Healthcare Simulation (DIHS) has been formed to capitalise on the capability of two centres within the School of Medicine at the University of Dundee with combined experience of providing simulation-based medical education spanning thirty years. Formed as the result of a collaboration between NHS Tayside, the University of Dundee and Medtronic Ltd, the DIHS will both enhance existing simulated training activity and develop new educational products which will establish the DIHS as a world leading facility for simulation-based healthcare education. Current activity within the DIHS spans healthcare practice, and includes all aspects of healthcare provision including practical, communication and non-technical skills. Significant recent advances have been made in developing cadaveric models for image-guided therapies, and developing national programmes for clinical and communication skills.
