  • University of Montreal Faculty of Medicine healthcare simulation centre

  • CAE Healthcare has partnered with Université de Montréal's Faculty of Medicine to establish and operate a healthcare simulation training centre, which is called the Centre d'apprentissage des attitudes et habiletés cliniques (CAAHC). CAE is operating the training centre, providing instructional services, developing technology and educational tools, and providing programs related to medical simulation.

    Under the agreement, CAE Healthcare is providing training centre operations services and instructors. CAE Healthcare and CAAHC deliver structured healthcare educational programs to the Faculty of Medicine's students, offer courses such as Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) to the community of practice, and create innovative medical simulation solutions. The healthcare simulation training centre serves as a research laboratory to improve patient safety.

    Together, CAE Healthcare and CAAHC have had a tremendous success rate at providing training for more than 1,000 students at the centre every month. CAE's partnership with Université de Montréal's Faculty of Medicine allows us to transfer our expertise in training from the aviation domain to the healthcare domain. CAE's work at the CAAHC allows us to develop and apply methods of simulation training that help healthcare professionals learn and adapt within a rapidly changing environment.

    CAE Healthcare and the CAAHC first entered into a partnership in 2009. They received accreditation from the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (RCPSC), and collaboratively developed a simulation-based medical school curriculum to meet accreditation standards and objectives.
