CASE (CENTER OF ADVANCED SIMULATION & EDUCATION)
CASE is unique throughout the world, offering high quality education with a multidisciplinary approach. It uses new training methodologies operating at international standard levels with state-of-the-art medical equipment and technical infrastructure.
CASE consists of two main departments:
1) Clinical Simulation Training Center 2) Advanced Endoscopic / Robotic Surgery Training Center. Training methodology being utilized in CASE consists of e-learning modules, skills laboratories, simulation and debriefing sessions, and recording systems with learning space.
By integrating learning space software and hardware, equipped with 80 high resolution cameras, training sessions can be recorded. The learning space system imports data also from medical simulators and medical devices. During the debriefing sessions, recordings provide the opportunity to participants for both self and peer – evaluation.
Post graduate training consists of advanced courses catered to participants specialties. The objectives of these programs are to improve participants technical skills, to cultivate teamwork and to enhance communication skills. In addition to theoretical study opportunities at Acibadem University, hands-on training is also provided in modern laboratories.
CASE has an advantage over many other centers in its differentiating staff distribution model. CASE’s core is a multidisciplinary team from varied professional backgrounds that enable the course faculty to deliver high quality education.

Mannequin based courses are provided for below mentioned training programs. Target population varies from doctors, nurses, paramedics, technicians. Simulation training programs durations are organized in various sessions. For each session 6 to 8 participants are accepted.
II) ADVANCED LAPAROSCOPIC AND ROBOTIC SURGERY TRAINING CENTER
Basic and Advanced Endoscopic Surgery Training Program
The Department of Anatomy’s dissection hall and animal operating room prepared for laparoscopic surgery are found in the Advanced Endoscopic and Robotic Surgery Training Center. The cadaver dissection hall, aside from the enhancing of graduate students’ anatomy skills, is fully and adequately equipped to provide assistants and specialists with post-graduate training in carrying out procedures on fresh frozen partial cadavers especially in neurosurgery, orthopedics and ear, nose and throat surgery. The animal operating hall is comprised of 9 surgical tables designed specifically for pigs. The Basic and Advanced Endoscopic Surgery Training program duration is 2 days. The accepted number of participants is between 16 and 18.
Basic and Advanced Robotic Surgery Training Program
An additional reference room is also available for robotic surgery training. All means of media broadcasting are made possible – both into and out of – these operating rooms. General surgery, orthopedics and traumatology, urology, gynecology and obstetrics, head and neck and cardiovascular surgery specialists can benefit of from robotic surgery and advanced laparoscopic surgery training. The Basic and Advanced Robotic Surgery Training program duration is 2 days. The required number of participants is 2.
