Clinical Simulation Center "Praxi Medica"


The Clinical Simulation Center of Sechenov University differs from similar facilities in terms of wider range of contingent (from citizens to qualified physicians), wider areas of training (general medicine, preventive medicine, internal diseases, surgery, obstetrics and gynecology, anesthesiology and reanimatology, pediatrics, radiology, cardiology, urology, healthcare management, nursery, basics of the first aid, etc.), as well as the system approach to the evaluation of results.

The Center offers training programs in endovideosurgery and laparoscopy for surgeons, urologists, gynecologists, as well as orthopedic, thoracic and cardiac surgeons. The Center also offers hands-on courses for neonatologists, anesthesiologists, mammologists etc. 

The main advantage is surgical training on animal models with full surgical team. 

The training courses involve on-line video from the surgery rooms of the Center and the University Clinics. 
The Center also hosts various thematic schools, master-classes, and educational workshops with top Russian and internatinal experts. 

The Center provides several options for surgery training: basic certificate training courses (18-108 hours) and advanced training (18-72 hours). 

The Center totally counts about 50 educational modes of different specialization and duration. Some modes are a part of an obligatory program of simulative education in specific areas for interns and residents. Every single specialist has an opportunity of training within an individual mode.

Tasks performance is controlled by experts and computer programs. The team works are recorded for the purpose of further discussion.

Basic modes are available via the link. 

The Center provides the following training techniques:


During simulation studies specific training equipment and tools allow students to deliberately perform actions/operations in an environment modelling a real-world situation.

-Peer tuition;

The main idea of such studies is based on the learning pyramid by NTL Institute (Bethel, Maine) which states that learners retain approximately 90% of what they learn when they teach someone else/use immediately.

-Visualization of lectures;

-Computer testing;

-Distance learning;
