Nature of course:  Open to internal GSTT attendees only

Course Director: Dr Shumontha Dev, Consultant in Emergency Medicine, and Mags Jubbs, Placement Development Manager

De-briefing session taking place


During this one day course candidates have an introductory lecture and a session to familiarise them with the simulation environment, followed by several simulated clinical communication scenarios.

Debriefing sessions take place after each scenario, where candidates can reflect on their and the group’s performance, guided by experienced facilitators.


This course reinforces foundation curriculum learning. It uses common clinical situations ranging from acute emergencies to communication-based scenarios.

It introduces the interpersonal and cognitive skills required to perform effectively in complex clinical situations through ‘human factors’ training – also known as non-technical skills (NTS).


For foundation doctors, years 1 and 2, and newly qualified preceptorship nurses & midwives
