    An undergraduate focus, but statewide impact

    While University of Adelaide undergraduate education is our AHS team’s primary focus, we also work throughout South Australia in a variety of local health networks and regional centres.

    We are highly accomplished in delivering in situ simulation training for health professionals in a wide variety of settings, including: hospitals, emergency departments, wards, postgraduate education programs, defence force facilities, secondary school awareness programs, and more.

    The only limitation to the engaging and effective application of simulation-based education and training is imagination.

    Our vision

    Adelaide Health Simulation aspires to ensure the highest standards of patient centred care by providing our future health workforce with the most realistic, immersive and holistic technology-enhanced training possible—in all regards, the equal of any in the world.

    Our mission

    To achieve our vision, we’ll match world’s-best simulation technology with sound, evidence-based educational principles. We’ll cultivate an environment in which students and educators across multiple disciplines feel safe to explore knowledge collaboratively, and learn from each other’s mistakes. We’ll rapidly respond to emerging community needs in patient care; and we’ll equip students with advanced problem-solving and human-factors capabilities that they will carry for life.
