The Northern Clinical Simulation program, which provides advanced learning opportunities for medical professionals using human patient simulators - interactive training mannequins - to practice their skills, celebrated its 10-year anniversary.

Since 2011, the program has been critical in developing and supporting the highest standard of care for Northerners.

The program’s success is due in a large part to its ongoing partnership between Northern Health, the University of British Columbia’s Northern Medical Program, the College of New Caledonia, and the School of Nursing at the University of Northern BC.

In recognition of this achievement, we celebrated with a small event, where each partner was presented with a plaque in honour of all the hard work and dedication that has helped make the program a success.
