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 which is under the College of Health Sciences, is located in Buildings F and E of VinUniversity with an area of approximately 4,000 square meters. It has been designed as a simulated hospital environment with state-of-the-art facilities and a wide range of modern simulators and equipment which are always updated to meet the standards of simulation-based training around the world. 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 certificates with 2-year validity. 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.
