To simulate real conditions, to limit risks on patients and to increase the quality of patient care, participants have the opportunity to practice on a wide range of teaching material, from synthetic models to anatomical specimens.
The quantities of anatomical specimens highly depend on the actual availabilities.
The animals used at the SFITS are NOT sacrificed for training or research purposes.
Synthetic models reflect human anatomy and play a significant role in medical training.
Some of our simulators: Virtamed, Medability, Simbionix, Simulare Medical
BODY DONATION FOR TRAINING AND RESEARCH PURPOSES
We would like to sincerely thank all the people that consented and will consent to give their body to science. This ultimate gift allows us to offer continuous medical education to operating room professionals.
With the body donation program at the Swiss national level, we are able to advance surgical and interventional medecine and patient care, day by day.
All anatomical specimens and animal parts are treated with the greatest respect.
Any person stepping in the SFITS is responsible for his/her own safety, the safety of others and the integrity and respect of the anatomical specimens. He/she consents to strictly follow the medical code of conduct and to display a professional and ethical behavior towards inert material at all times.
For example (but not limited to):
Surgical simulators let allow surgeons practice gestures and techniques on ultra-realistic anatomical parts, without risk to the patient and in a secure environment.
A large number of simulators are available at the SFITS.
