Organisation profile

NordSim is a center of skill training and simulation under AaUH.

Through training in both technical (skills training) and non-technical skills (simulation), we educate health professionals, both pre- and postgraduate at different levels of education.

The target group is mainly doctors, nurses, medical students and ambulance rescuers.

NordSim also develops training offers for individuals, multidisciplinary teams, departments, hospitals or educational institutions.

Through knowledge sharing, library function for advanced equipment and assistance in planning and implementing training, we support skills training and simulation at all the region's hospitals, partly in Thisted and Hobro, partly through cooperation with VenSim, who has overall responsibility for the activities in Hjørring and Frederikshavn.

We provide ongoing "Faculty development" and development of courses to ensure highly skilled educators and clearly defined learning objectives.

A core service in NordSim is to train staff in collaboration and communication skills as wells as contributing to professional development, which ultimately leads to better continuity of care for the patients.

We also hope that these training offers can help promoting the recruitment of staff to the region.

NordSim has a wide range of cooperation, including:

  • Other simulation centres, especially CAMES RH, CAMES Herlev, MidtSim (Aarhus) and SiMC (Odense), SIC (Horsens) and Learning Center Randers
  • Aalborg University – About medical training in Aalborg
  • Aarhus University (postgraduate clinical Lecturat in skills training and simulation)
  • National cooperation on KBU education

We are part of several multicentre studies focusing on medical learning and are building an independent research unit, where the focus will initially be on training in the use of Point Of Care ultrasound as well as training in robot surgery.
