Most of the courses offered are in the Czech language and can be found in the Czech section of the website.
European Paediatric Advanced Life Support (EPALS)
EPALS is a certified course of the European Resuscitation Council (ERC) intended for all healthcare professionals who can be expected to get involved in the care of a critically ill child in the first 30–60 minutes (newborn, infant, older child), either in hospital or in pre-hospital care. The course aims to provide participants with the theoretical knowledge and practical skills necessary to care for a child with respiratory or circulatory failure due to various causes and to prevent the progression of a critical condition to cardiac arrest. The teaching emphasizes teamwork skills in resuscitation teamwork, leadership, communication, and cooperation among health care professionals.
The course is designed exclusively for healthcare professionals who may perform or teach extended emergency resuscitation in children in routine clinical practice or provide treatment to critically ill children as part of their job. The most frequent participants of the course are physicians of all specialities, especially emergency medicine, anaesthesiology and intensive care physicians, as well as paramedics and nurses working in intensive care or resuscitation units, operating theatres, hospital emergency rooms or ambulance services.
Participation in the course is conditional on clinical practice and completed medical education, e.g. completed studies at a university or higher vocational school of health care, secondary medical school or medical faculty (an exception may be granted only to students of the 5th and 6th years of the Faculty of Medicine if their number in the course does not exceed 10 % of the total number of participants).

What participants say about our courses and excursions
“The ABCD course and debriefing was absolutely great. Even when I read the support before the course and watched the instruction videos, I could see a lot of mistakes I was making in teaching paramedics and in debriefing, which I was doing poorly because I didn't really know how to do it well. Adult education has its own specifics, and I'm so glad I got to experience it here with a bunch of similarly passionate people, because that's really important in teaching too. The lecturers were very nice and gave us a lot of attention, and self-training is probably the best thing you can do for your practice.”Olga, Svitavy
“ABCD debriefing totally "TOP" course.”Olga, Habrovany
“Thanks to the organizers of this course. You are great, you do a perfect job. I wish all nurses, paramedics and emergency medical technicians to go through your course at SIMU MED MUNI. It is excellent training on how to deal with the situations we are in at our workplaces. Thank you also for all the workshops, lectures and also for the excellent coffee.”Klára, Prague
Course for anaesthetic nurses
“I expected a lot from the excursion. I had already decided before I applied that I wanted to study at the Faculty of Medicine in Brno. The excursion was supposed to confirm me in this conviction, and it really did - I expected a lot from the excursion. I had already decided before I applied that I wanted to study at the Faculty of Medicine in Brno. The excursion was supposed to confirm me in this conviction and it really did. I would like to encourage all those who are hesitating whether to apply for similar T-excursions. Definitely YES!"”Josef
“I will gladly recommend this excursion further, as it absolutely fulfills its function and really introduces us in the most realistic way to what awaits us on the road to the white coat. If you are hesitant and unsure if medicine is the right fit, SIMU has the answer for you. And trust me, 9 out of 10 physicians say it won't be negative.”Kateřina
“Both lecturers were very skilled and kind. It was fun. Thank you for this opportunity I've been given. I hope it wasn't the last time I visited SIMU. Of course, I will consider studying. Thank you very much.”Monika
“The whole excursion was easy to understand and very friendly, from the beginning to the end. Finally, the people on this excursion were amazing, and I can say that besides new experiences and knowledge, I also took home new friendships with people who share the same interests as me. For students who are hesitating about whether studying medicine in Brno is the right thing to do, I would definitely recommend going on this t-excursion, as it may be the deciding factor for them.”Peter
“I had the opportunity to see many kinds of figurines and also to try something for myself. I am definitely glad for this experience and would highly recommend it to all high school students. Whether you know where to go next in your studies, are on the fence, or want to get a general awareness from a different cup of tea.”Tereza
“I chose this T-excursion because I was wondering if studying medicine was for me. Thanks to a very friendly lecturer, I can now confidently say that I am interested in medicine, and it is a very interesting field. The facilities at SIMU are stunning, everything is highly modern and it really feels like a real hospital. I really enjoyed the T-excursion. I consider the opportunity to try everything myself to be a huge advantage.”Tomáš
“The course at the Simulation Centre was definitely beneficial for me. Thanks to the perfect cooperation of lecturers and technicians, there was no deaf spot, and it was possible to enjoy the prepared scenarios to the fullest. It was inspiring to experience situations from everyday practice in a different context, in a different role, which was often surprising. It offers an impulse for the possibility of changing the stereotypes experienced, and I see this as one of the meanings of the simulations. And as the icing on the cake, it was fun in a good team and the friendly atmosphere of the Simulation Centre.”Tereza
