Many forms of simulation, as a teaching strategy, have been used successfully over the last few decades. Some of the advantages thereof in health sciences education are that it is a learner-centered training modality that presents with no risks to patients and allows for facilitated repetition of learning until all students have achieved the required level of proficiency. Simulation may reduce time spent by students in clinical areas to master the necessary skills and it is therefore perceived as an efficient use of limited resources. Utilising the Clinical Skills Centre (CSC) for teaching of procedures may therefore facilitate the reduction in time allocated to the clinical areas.
