SIMTICS enables learning & testing of cognitive clinical skills anytime, anywhere. Its multi-media cognitive simulations are integrated with 3D anatomy, quiz, video and text, so all the resources the learner needs are in one place. Like an online “flight simulator for clinical procedures”, SIMTICS de-risks the learning experience and allows learners to practice and rehearse as often as required to build competence and confidence. SIMTICS is headquartered in Auckland, New Zealand and has a US sales office in Hartford, Connecticut, with resellers in India, Saudi Arabia and Australia.5 Articles
