Dr. Parag Rishipathak
Professor & Director

Dear Friends,
Warm greetings from Symbiosis Centre for Health Skills (SCHS)!!

SCHS is a multidisciplinary educational facility that strives to provide high-tech Simulation based and Competency driven teaching, training and assessment for health care professionals in clinical and allied specialties. As we all know Simulation-based learning can be applied to develop knowledge, skills, and attitudes, in health professionals whilst protecting patients from unnecessary risks. Simulation-based medical education can be a platform which provides a valuable tool in learning to mitigate ethical tensions and resolve practical dilemmas. Simulation-based training techniques, tools, and strategies can be applied in designing structured learning experiences, as well as be used as a measurement tool linked to targeted teamwork competencies and learning objectives. In medicine, simulation offers good scope for training of interdisciplinary medical teams. The realistic scenarios and equipment allows for retraining and practice till one can master the procedure or skill. Teamwork training conducted in the simulated environment may offer an additive benefit to the traditional didactic instruction, enhance performance, and possibly also help reduce medical errors.

The broad objective is to align with the National Agenda of Skill Development to create robust and vibrant eco system for quality education and skill development in healthcare sector in the country.
