Welcome

The Center for Advanced Medical Simulation and Training (CAMST) offers systematic training of technical and non-technical skills in high fidelity simulators for students and health care staff. This improves patient safety and decreases the risk of medical mistakes.

Center for Advanced Medical Simulation and Training (CAMST) is a core facility for systematic training at Karolinska University Hospital. The Center has a leading position in systematic education, evaluation and research in the field of advanced medical simulation. Our vision is to maximize patient safety.

Our mission is fourfold:

a. To implement and strengthen the safety culture in today's healthcare
b. Validation and research in the field of advanced medical simulators and human factors in high technological healthcare
c. Development of a modern curriculum embedding the use of advanced medical simulators for image guided surgery and endoscopy as well as crew resource management and procedural training in acute care settings
d. Basic accreditation in image guided surgery and endoscopy
