The VinUniversity Medical Simulation Center (VMSC) was established in July 2017 and aims to enhance the quality of medical practice, patient safety and satisfaction through effective simulation in healthcare.
VMSC is under the College of Health Science and is housed in Buildings F and E of VinUniversity with approximately 4,000 square meters. It includes state-of-the-art facilities, manikins and devices used in realistic hospital environments for inter-professional education and training. Currently, we are providing various training courses to physicians, nurses, other health staff, and students from all across the Health System, Medical Universities/schools and also other personnel in the community. As a unique authorized International Training Center (ITC) by the American Heart Association (AHA) in Vietnam since May 2018, VMSC has conducted a number of AHA courses, including Heartsaver (First Aid, CPR and AED), BLS (Basic Life Support), ACLS (Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support) and PALS (Pediatric Advanced Life Support) courses. After completing these courses, trainees will receive AHA 2-year valid certificates. Beyond the AHA courses, our center also provides a course in communication skills for medical encounters with standardized patients for health staff and medical students. This course is well-developed by MSR (Israel Center for Medical Simulation) with reality-based medical scenarios, giving trainees a safe learning environment when practicing clinical skills or soft skills in the healthcare setting.
