As well as the nine simulators listed above, each of our four centres promotes educational opportunities with

The four centres also have audiovisual equipment for recording sessions, facilitating debriefing. Most quality sessions include items such as confederates, task trainers, videos, and video debriefing.
Our experienced staff have assisted with hundreds of simulation sessions and can help develop, design, and program custom scenarios to meet your educational needs.
Task trainers are lifelike models of body parts (such as an arm, pelvis, or chest). They’re used for practicing specific medical procedures.
They’re available to any centre. Most are in Prince George, but they can be shipped/used for mobile/in situ.
