The former Haldane building on the Singleton campus has been transformed into a pioneering centre featuring eight immersive simulation suites, with three more under development at the University’s St David’s Park campus in Carmarthen.
Directing the SUSIM project is Professor Jo Davies, Director of Simulation Education for the Faculty of Medicine, Health and Life Sciences. She states that students across healthcare courses will benefit from highly realistic scenarios and hands-on learning opportunities.
Building on Swansea University’s excellence in teaching and research, the vision for SUSIM is to deliver world-class simulation-based education, innovation and research in this rapidly expanding field.
Using immersive spaces will bring more opportunities to collaborate with global leaders in simulation, advancing significant developments in learning and training safer, more skilled healthcare teams.
The vision to lead advancements in immersive learning has been strongly supported by University leadership, aiming to address the growing complexities of healthcare training. I look forward to working with our excellent faculty, students and partners as SUSIM comes to fruition.
