Speech-language pathology simulator provides unique educational opportunities

Would you like to know more about the School’s SimMan – a life-size, plastic mannequin programmed to help speech-language pathology students develop their swallowing-assessment and treatment skills?

Check out The Ubyssey (UBC’s student newspaper) to hear from Dr. Stacey Skoretz about how SimMan provides students with an opportunity to practice their clinical skills before they go out and practice on live patients.

And in case you missed it, don’t forget to watch the Faculty of Medicine’s video on how SimMan is helping students to improve their confidence in diagnosing and treating swallowing disorders.
