Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT) and CAE Healthcare have announced a unique partnership that will help the polytechnic institute expand its world-class medical simulation program.
The partnership now gives NAIT students and industry partners access to some of the most advanced medical simulation technology on the market.
While simulation training and research has been happening at NAIT for about two decades, it ramped up dramatically in the last five years because of emerging technologies, include a childbirth simulator that can simulate both normal and emergency situations. CAE Healthcare, which is a Montreal-based international leader in the field of simulation-based education and training for healthcare, has also certified NAIT as a CAE Healthcare Centre of Excellence, one of only three facilities in the world to receive the designation and the first in Canada.
