Recently, the university has purchased new equipment in the Interdepartmental Training Center, having spent almost 4 million UAH. This equipment will be for students in their studies. When it comes to the quality of education, the administration does not spare resources, taking care of the latest technologies in the educational process and providing our students with all the best equipment possible.
The virtual patient simulator can emulate men, women and children. At the moment the person responsible for operating simulator is Kateyna Romanova, Head of the center, assistant of the Department of Multimodal Diagnostics and Propedeutics. Together with her assistants Artur Cherniavskyi and Iryna Skoba, they are working on the implementation of the new equipment in the educational process.
The simulator is set up on more than fifty scenarios of therapeutic and pediatric profiles, and it's possible to fully follow the topics of almost all areas of medicine. Students are given 15 minutes to examine and communicate with a patient, confirm the diagnosis, and provide treatment. In the end, students receive their results in percentage for each block, and if there are mistakes, they can be easily tracked afterwards.
Thanks to the simulator, through trial and error students may became aware of weak spots in their education and fill those gaps during practice before graduation, so that they could be fully prepared to real cases. Even though patients in the simulator are virtual, the idea of losing a patient is still somewhat stressful for students, thus forcing them for further overall improvement.
