Faculty of Medicine
Finland’s high quality healthcare is ensured by training qualified experts in medicine and nursing sciences. In the University's new clinical skills teaching facilities, future doctors and nurses can simulate working in multiprofessional groups, using various practical skills. While the patient in the room happens to be a dummy, the simulation creates real learning experiences.
