SIMU introduced at MEFANET 2019 conference
In the last week of November, a traditional two-day meeting of representatives of medical and health faculties of the Czech Republic and Slovakia took place in Brno. The MEFANET conference again focused on the innovative use of modern technologies in teaching medical and non-medical health study programs.
A total of three contributions from the Simulation Center were presented at this conference. T. Prokopová presented an innovative teaching of first aid. M. Anton acquainted the participants with the concept of teaching propedeutics and J. Blažková informed about the implementation of the Simulation Center project, which should be in operation from September 2020.

The newly emerging Simulation Center of the Faculty of Medicine of Masaryk University is a workplace where medical students learn clinical skills in a safe environment without the risk of harm to the patient. The simulation center provides the background for the application of a wide range of modern teaching methods of simulation medicine.

SIMUportfolio platform as support for OSCE
The introduction of practical examinations in the teaching of medical students (so-called OSCE - Objective Structured Clinical Examination) at LF Mu is, among other things, supported by the SIMUportfolio platform, which is developed by the Webstudio IBA LF MU team. This platform was presented in detail at this year's CSEDU conference, which took place on 2. - 4. May 2020. We do not mention the venue this time, as the event took place completely online.
The SIMU expert team will not idle even during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Especially during the current epidemiological crisis, restriction of public movement and contact education at all universities, it is important to maintain as much clinically-oriented instruction as possible, not only undergraduate but also postgraduate.
