eSIM
educate, Simulate. Innovate, Motivate

Staff and partners of Alberta Health Services from across the province can obtain simulation-based training from the eSIM team.

eSIM is based on four concepts: educate, simulate, innovate and motivate. A team of simulation experts, support staff and faculty use these concepts to collaborate with various healthcare professionals in order to develop and deliver scenarios to participants with the intention of creating a safe and meaningful environment.

Advanced Technical Skills Simulation Lab (ATSSL)

The Advanced Technical Skills Simulation Laboratory (ATSSL) Surgical Skills Lab (the first of four components), is a state-of-the-art facility that allows medical trainees and practicing professionals the opportunity to acquire, practice and develop their skills in a safe learning environment. Simulation in medical education is fundamental to producing proficient and confident healthcare professionals and subsequently enhancing patient care and safety. Simulation learning offers many advantages such as access to unique customizable experiences, freedom to make mistakes and cause no harm, and the provision of detailed feedback and evaluation. The ATSSL will enable AHS and the University of Calgary to become leaders in simulation-based medical education.

eSIM Mobile

As the majority of sites/sectors within Alberta Health Services do not have access to dedicated simulation centres, the eSIM Provincial Simulation Program relies heavily on mobile simulation is utilized to reach our suburban and rural colleagues. With a dedicated fleet of vehicles and the integration of portable simulation equipment, the eSIM mobile simulation program is well positioned to support a diversity of clinical training requirements directly to staff and physicians in isolated rural, remote and zonal locations.

To support sites, programs and clinical educators, the eSIM Program has dedicated a lead Simulation Consultant for each zone within Alberta Health Services. If you would like more information on our mobile simulation program or to explore how to book a session, please contact the following:
