Laboratório de Simulação Faculdade de Medicina de Ribeirão Preto Universidade de São Paulo


The introduction of Simulation as an active teaching methodology in the undergraduate courses offered by FMRP-USP was the basis for the establishment of LabSim.

The interest in centralizing resources in the LabSim has been proven and currently several courses already use the resources of the laboratory.

LabSim has its Internal  Rules by the Undergraduate Committee and the Congregation of FMRP-USP and they are documented in the Process FMRP-USP 2012.1.13958.1.5.

There is a specific form for the development of didactic activities at LabSim.

All demands for courses to be developed at LabSim are evaluated by the Laboratory Committee. To start a new activity, the user must formalize the request and schedule an appointment with a member of the Committee to ensure uniformity of methodology, as well as to clarify the resources available and arrange the scheduling.

The Committee shall be referred regarding non-curricular undergraduate courses and medical residency, since there is the encouragement for these courses to be formalized as University Extension Courses  according to USP rules.

LabSim has also been used for Post Graduate courses in Medical Education and it is involved in USP Projects dedicated to teaching such as the PEEG.
