Mario Luzzatto Simulation Center

You learn by making mistakes: you learn more through simulation  

The Mario Luzzatto Simulation Center, one of the largest and most technologically advanced Centers in Europe, offers a unique 360° training experience. Benefiting from the co-location of University, Hospital and Research Center, the center offers state-of-the-art educational courses and hands-on workshops to students, residents and professionals.



The field and technology of medical simulation has advanced rapidly in the last years. This allows us to reproduce many clinical scenarios, as well as the dynamics of the interaction between healthcare professionals and/or between healthcare professionals and patients.
Within the 2,200 square meters dedicated to simulation and hands-on anatomy laboratories, participants around the globe can immerse themselves in technical and non-technical (teamwork, leadership, communication, etc.) skill training. Innovative technology is used to conduct experimental teaching activities in medicine and surgery and to study anatomy via a 3D virtual anatomy catalogue.

The Center offers:
  • 3 high-fidelity and 2 medium-low-fidelity simulation rooms
  • 4 multifunctional rooms for education and/or debriefing
  • 3 control booths
  • 1 physiotherapy lab
  • 1 wet anatomy lab

There are also 3 conference rooms for plenary sessions, with seating capacity for up to 250 people.
All the simulation rooms, the wet anatomy lab, the conference rooms and the auditorium are equipped with state-of-the-art audio-video systems and are interconnected, thereby guaranteeing maximum interactivity between the various spaces during the course of the event.
The Simulation Center also provides space for companies to reproduce clinical scenarios or test train medical equipment launched within a modern hospital.  The center is set up to replicate hospital rooms, operating theatres, emergency services, and endoscopy and angiography suites, among many other settings.
