The Medical Education Directorate has centres at Ashford, Canterbury and Margate. Each site has its own lecture theatre equipped with projectors and video conferencing units, plus seminar rooms equipped with computers and large widescreen monitors. (HDMI and VGA connections are available, but we recommend you bring your own adaptor if required as we can't guarantee we will have one to fit every type of device.) Service users who wish to book a room in any of our centres should visit the Bookwise Education site and follow the on-screen instructions (staffzone, login required).

Simulation Training

As its name suggests, Simulation training is designed to replicate the experience of working in a real clinical environment (such as a ward, theatre, anaesthetic room, etc.) but using a sophisticated patient manikin (or simulated real patient). Multiple scenarios can be represented, and sessions are typically monitored (and recorded) from a control room via video links.

There are two simulation suites available, one at the WHH and the other at the QEQM.

Library and Knowledge Services support staff and students with literature searches, finding evidence, research skills workshops, and journal and ebook access. They are represented across all three sites.

We also have a Medical Photography and Illustration Department (based at Margate) which, in addition to recording clinical conditions of patients, also provides an income generated illustration service (posters, leaflets, drawings, lecture materials etc.).
