DUMAGUETE CITY, Jan. 9 (PIA) -- Silliman University (SU) in Dumaguete City, Negros Oriental received a grant of US$500,000 from the Office of the American Schools and Hospitals Abroad (ASHA) for the development of a virtual simulation laboratory.

This will allow the university to renovate its existing virtual laboratory, said Mark Raygan Garcia, director of SU Office of Information and Publications in a statement.

“It includes purchase of equipment, including human patient and other robotic simulators which are critical to recreate various scenarios such as natural calamities and other disasters,” said Garcia.

Said equipment will provide the university’s students and healthcare professionals in neighboring schools and provinces an opportunity to analyze decisions and courses of action by simulating different hospital-based conditions.

Garcia said SU currently has a virtual laboratory set up at the Olivia Villaflores-Yanson Hall which features “STAN”, a human patient simulator.

“The laboratory is being used by healthcare students in determining the proper administration of medicines and conduct of related medical procedures,” he added.

With the grant, SU hopes to enhancing the capability of the virtual laboratory and expand its coverage.

Part of the university’s plan is to to develop web-based courses and content from the simulation exercises to facilitate collective learning and interaction on real-life situations. (RMN/PIA Negros Oriental with reports form SU-OIP)
