The Dundee Institute of Health Care Simulation [DIHS] Surgical Skills Centre is the first centre in the UK to be awarded full accreditation from
The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh (RCSEd). https://www.rcsed.ac.uk/
The Dundee Institute for Healthcare Simulation was formed to capitalise on the capability of the Surgical and Clinical Skills Centres within the School of Medicine at the University of Dundee. These award winning facilities have combined experience of providing simulation-based medical education spanning thirty years. 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. This recognition from one of the largest and oldest surgical organisations in the world recognises the rigorous internal quality assurance processes that the Centre, and the College, apply across the full range of their educational portfolios, and further strengthens the collaboration between the two parties.
