University of Portsmouth Simulation Vehicle

February 20 @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm

We have secured a visit from the University of Portsmouth School of Health Sciences and Social Work to bring their Simulation Vehicle on site.

The vehicle will be based on the Netball Courts and open from 9.45 – 4.30pm. Around booked sessions, staff and students are encouraged to pop by in breaks to take a look.

Within the vehicle, students and staff will have the opportunity to practice their skills in physical assessment and clinical examination, as well as responding to deterioration in the patient’s condition – Apollo is the simulated manikin!

Clinical practitioners who teach across the ODP (Operating Department Practitioner degree), Nursing and Paramedic Science degrees will lead sessions and the vehicle can hold 8-10 people comfortably. The sessions are designed to be very interactive.

Additionally, we will be hosting academic lectures in S6 at 11am and 2pm on detailed pathways / degrees / careers UoP can offer.
