Support Simulation

The Carlin Operating Room was made possible through the generosity of iCELS Ambassador, the late Roberta Carlin and her family. Dedications like this is one way for you to make a difference in the evolving field of medical education. At iCELS, this difference is noted in the additional scope of simulations.

Community support helps iCELS simulation activities go further and deeper in delivering greater patient outcomes. This, as we constantly strive in our daily efforts to:

  • Evaluate the detection and facilitating the reduction of medical errors, ahead of each medical learner and healthcare professional’s contact time with patients in real world settings

  • Engage with affiliates in diverse healthcare settings and form wholistic, customized solutions to solve today’s healthcare challenges

  • Enhance interpersonal communication among healthcare professionals – a crucial key to improving care outcomes

  • Enlist members of the public from our local communities and guide them with a structured training program to bring out each patient’s potentials as a valuable first-person educator to the medical learners
