Stellenbosch University and Medtronic collaborate to bring a transformational change to training and education of healthcare professionals across sub-Saharan Africa. The new Integrated Clinical Training Laboratory offers eight fully simulated theatre operating stations, a ‘dry’ laboratory, a 100-seat lecture theatre and a virtual ICU — all complemented and connected by breakthrough audiovisual capabilities. This facility adds value to health systems across the sub-continent through improved clinical management and better patient outcomes, thereby increasing access to quality healthcare.
The University Hospital Clinic of Barcelona (UHCB) is a public hospital included in the integrated health system of Catalonia (SISCAT). It is configured as a benchmark of excellence for specialised healthcare delivery, development of the pre- and post-graduate teaching and research.
