Introduction to IAVANTE Simulation Medical Center


1) Brief about the Center

Below are samples of the centers activities. And to see all the programs visit the website:



Training in IAVANTE is based on the combination of innovative simulation methodologies, carried out in highly realistic environments and endorsed by the expert knowledge of its teaching team.


Evaluation and Selection

IAVANTE provides evaluation and selection based on the measurement of professional competencies through innovative simulation methodologies applied in realistic scenarios and controlled by experts in each subject in order to obtain objective results on standards of efficacy, efficiency and quality.


*Specialised Training Programme
Iavante manages the training of healthcare professionals through comprehensive training programmes where the main purpose is to improve care quality and patient safety.

The Iavante Advanced Multifunctional Center for Simulation and Technological Innovation in Granada (Spain) is a leading medical simulation centre due to its combination of innovative didactic methodologies in clinical simulation.

This training programme includes training in complex technical skills and non-technical skills, relational skills in advanced critical care and training in endoscopic techniques.
