The Johannesburg Institute for Advancing Sciences boasts a 560 sq. mt. skills training facility. Within the facility are multiple state-of-the-art simulation labs dedicated to training across various specialties such as cardiology, peripheral, G.I. and endoscopic interventions, urology and pelvic health. Complementing the labs are various conference rooms and an auditorium, all equipped with the latest audio-visual technologies enabling live-stream sessions to take place both within the IAS as well as with our other global institutes, allowing for the African continent to further connect with key stakeholders within the global medical society.
Our goal is to further collaborate with the academic institutes and medical societies to provide first-class education through the use of cutting edge technology.
With an increase in complex patient profiles and new technologies, the demand to train in a safe environment has increased. Simulation training, together with specific didactic content, has proven to make a significant difference in increasing the confidence of all health care practitioners, relating directly to patient safety and improved treatment outcomes.
The IAS is the first in Africa, and we welcome you to utilize the institute for specific skills trainings programs, meetings and seminars.
