Clinical simulation is a tool with a lot of potential in learning, especially for the students from Health Sciences, so that they can acquire a complete, practical training during their time at the University. During this practical training they face simulated clinical processes, that are similar to the real cases they will find, when they get into professional world. UCAM has been supporting these kind of techniques for more than ten years, and since its beginnings implanted a complete unit with different simulation rooms.
Among the different tools of simulation, there is clinical reasoning table, where the student starts the simulations with learning how to do logical thinking, and later on will practice with more advanced simulators, and finally will move on to clinical practice.
