The Thames Valley Deanery has several state-of-the-art high fidelity simulation centres allowing ICM trainees within the region to observe, develop and test clinical skills in a safe and supportive environment. Oxford, Reading, Stoke Mandeville and Milton Keynes all have simulation centres on site but also run multi-disciplinary, in situ simulation sessions within the ICU’s themselves.
Stoke Mandeville SIM
For ICM trainees in the region, Dr Chantler runs the ICM simulation course. If you have not yet attended this session the dates are below, contact Dr Chantler directly to book on. These are great sessions, help get difficult curriculum items signed off and continuously get great feedback.

Interested in becoming faculty?
If you are interested in training to become a member of the sim faculty, this is possible by two routes. The first is for the enthusiastic amateur and this can be arranged by discussion with Dr Chantler (email above). Secondly there is a simulation fellowship available for trainees interested in gaining more formal training in simulation, see the fellowship tab for more details.
