Key goal of the higher and postgraduate medical education is to create conditions for successful developing wide range of competences and firmly reinforced skills in students. It includes the development of ability of making quick decisions and conducting medical procedures, especially in the field of emergency medicine. Improving practical skills of health professionals is one of the biggest issues of the modern healthcare system.
For the purpose of reaching set goals, there is following equipment at TCC:
- Many simulators, mannequins, models and phantoms of the various levels of reality (383 mannequin-robots and simulators, 14 high-tech mannequin-robots, case-scenario)
- Tactile sensitivity-equipped virtual clinic with simulators: АртроВР, LapSim
- Computer modelling of possible clinical situations (case scenario): iSTAN, MetiMan, BabySIM, PediaSIM, Noelle.
Since 2016, methodic “Standardized patient” has been introduced. There are lessons, where volunteers are attracted as standardized patients. Since 2018, professional development courses have been conducted for physicians and nurses of emergency departments.
- 3H system through the emergency patients severity index.
- Functional design of Emergency Department

Within the pilot project “Improving the activity of emergency departments of medical organizations of Kazakhstan”, SSMU is responsible for technical guidance. In this regard, first 3H training zone was established at SSMU for the first time in Kazakhstan. Functional design of Emergency Department is optimized for full training of students, interns, residents, teachers and doctors throughout the country.
Following international emergency medicine methods are taught by SSMU teachers, who have already attended professional training at the foreign universities: АНА 2015: BLS, ACLS, PALS, PhTLS, ATLS.
