LaC can propose, implement and collaborate on medical education research projects in FCS, in conjunction, when appropriate, with GEMA-CS. As part of its duties, LaC can be constituted as a Training Center of UBI in the area of simulation and clinical skills before national and foreign associations.
This Lab develops FCS courses´ undergraduate teaching activities, providing students with training in technical and non-technical skills with great impact on the care provided by health professionals after completion of pre-graduate training, and may also develop under and post-graduate teaching activities for other UBI courses and for health professionals.
LaC focuses on simulation, at different levels, as a teaching and learning methodology that creates the bridge between the pre-clinical education and professional practice.
This center cooperates with other FCS and UBI´s structures for the following purposes:
i) Promoting the development of strategic research areas in medical education;
ii) Promoting research projects in medical education;
iii) Promoting students contact with medical education projects;
iv) Reporting medical education research held in FCS;
v) Developing partnerships with medical education research centers;
