In 2018 after an initial project of 3 years the Trinity Simulation Suite was opened. Currently we run courses in clinical simulation for all disciplines in our school and schools within the Faculty of Health Sciences. We have expanded our service from the TSS (Trinity Simulation Suite) to include delivering courses in partnership with our associated services.
