Medical school facilities and simulation

Situated on the Bentley Campus, the five-storey Medical School building features consultation rooms for real-world learning, as well as collaborative and informal learning spaces, clinical skills areas and learning studios. It features high-speed, wireless technology AV-rich collaborative classrooms that create an immersive learning experience.



Problem-based learning rooms

Our purpose-built rooms have been constructed for conducting problem-based learning tutorials, which are a key teaching-learning method in the medical curriculum.

Clinical skills rooms

Purpose-built rooms have been constructed for conducting clinical skills training. The rooms simulate a doctor’s consulting room.

Anatomy suite – 3D life-size virtual bodies

Cut, pinch, rotate and zoom on a virtual human body with our anatomage tables. Created with computed tomography (CT) scans, the tables allow you to investigate the human body by virtually dissecting it. You can isolate blood vessels, arteries and veins, nerves, organs, muscles and bones.

As a health sciences student you’ll have access to preserved human and bone specimens, anatomical teaching models and resources. The dissection labs are used for research, anatomical dissection and comparative anatomy studies. A central museum space displays preserved human dissections and pathological specimens.

Simulation

You will participate in simulation-based learning throughout your degree. Simulated scenarios translate classroom teaching to realistic clinical settings, and prepare you for the fieldwork placements you will undertake during your studies.

The Faculty of Health Sciences is a nationally-recognised leader in simulation in healthcare education, and uses a range of computer-controlled manikins, hospital set-ups and backdrops in scenarios. We engage industry, use actors and community volunteers, and collaborate with schools in the faculty to deliver scenarios in a replica hospital ward, or replica clinic or hospital rooms.

Simulated patient expression of interest

If you are interested in being a simulated patient, please submit an expression of interest.
