Experiential learning is the foundation of Universidad Europea’s academic model and is based on one of its main pillars: the simulated environment. The Simulated Hospital plays a fundamental role, as its facilities allow students to virtually experience the real-life environment in a safe and controlled way. The space contains all the necessary elements to recreate the realistic atmosphere of a health centre, with the most advanced infrastructure technology and an audiovisual format coming together in an academic system that is accessible to both professors and students. It is a centre for clinical training, research and innovation in teaching. The patients that are seen here are standardised patients, virtual patients or actors, as well as patients from simulators with differing levels of complexity.
The Simulated Hospital is located on the ground floor of Building A of the Villaviciosa de Odón Campus and has an area of about 800 m2.
It has four offices with a table and two chairs, a stretcher, a Multiple Diagnostic Unit, an ultrasound machine, a height rod and scales for both adults and children, and four complex simulation rooms.
The Task Training room has 36 skill training stations.
In addition to the teaching space of the hospital itself, we have a 40m2 operating room.

The Simulated Hospital has four Sompleja Simulation Rooms
It has a biosafety cabinet with negative internal pressure, a drug repackaging machine integrated in the single-dose dispensing system, and a safe for medicines.

The Simulated Hospital is located on the ground floor of Building A at the Villaviciosa de Odón Campus. It has an area of around 800m2 and is laid out as follows:
In addition to the hospital’s teaching space, there are adjacent rooms relating to the running of the simulation:
At the Simulated Hospital, we use simulators with differing levels of complexity to carry out both practical skill training and complex scenario management practice. In addition, students can train with virtual clinical reasoning simulators, haptic technology and clinical simulation systems in a digital environment with the most innovative technology.
The clinical training and research carried out in the Simulated Hospital is led by members of all healthcare degrees. The following degrees carry out clinical simulation activities at the Simulated Hospital:
