Simulation Facilities

Whether for student learning, clinical examinations, professional development or health-care related conferences, Adelaide Health Simulation’s (AHS) facilities are world-class.

Located across two key University of Adelaide sites in the Adelaide CBD, including the Adelaide Health and Medical Sciences building in the heart of the BioMed City precinct, and the Helen Mayo South building on the North Terrace campus, AHS represents the cutting edge of technology-enhanced learning and assessment.

The two centres are seamlessly linked by high speed internet allowing remote control of audio visual functionality and exam features.
