The Alison Gingell Building was opened in 2018 by HRH Duke and Duchess of Cambridge who received a tour of the facilities and teaching within them. This page focus on simulation spaces, seminar rooms and open plan learning areas related to simulation in the building.
Students (mainly) enrolled on courses in the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences use the facilities extensively for teaching, research and innovative practice. This allows Coventry University students and staff to learn and develop in the highest quality facilities for simulation.
The Ambulance Room contains a full-scale UK ambulance and is situated on the ground floor of the building. Fully equipped and functioning, it allows students to experience what it is like to function within a limited space.
A fully functioning operating theatre allows Operating Department Practitioners in particular to simulate the full range of experiences they will encounter in the workplace.
Two two-storey patient houses allow students to adapt their learning and apply it to a community setting. Choosing to use either the adapted house or the standard house, depending on the learning outcomes of the session.
Multiple High Dependency Units featuring a full range of simulation manikins, one way observational windows and modern clinical equipment allow student to manage high risk situations using complex procedures without the risk of patient harm.
