Simulated Learning Environments

Simulated Learning Environments (SLEs) are located within the Burnie and Mersey campuses to promote collaborative learning opportunities and provide a setting for students, teachers and health professionals to hone and develop their clinical skills. They are restricted areas of access where high levels of security ensure the integrity of teaching, equipment and confidential information.

The SLEs are available for bookings by health professionals and undergraduates across the North-West and can be utilised on an individual or group basis. Rural Clinical School staff can also accommodate teaching and learning needs.


Educators are expected to read the Conditions and Terms of Hire (PDF 187 KB) which govern the set-up of the SLEs for teaching, and use and cleaning of equipment as well as maintenance. All users of the spaces are required to undertake an orientation before teaching and it is the responsibility of the clinical educator to contact SLEs staff to arrange this. Please negotiate all requirements prior to each booking, to ensure appropriate resources are available.

Further information can be found in the SLEs User Guide (PDF 1.24MB).

Online bookings can be made via the following links:

We offer a vast range of equipment within the SLEs that meet the practical learning needs of health professionals. Each space has been designed and developed with equipment in consultation with practising clinicians teaching in acute and primary care.

The following equipment is available for use at both the Mersey and Burnie campuses:

  • Human patient simulators
  • A variety of part task trainers
  • Associated simulation equipment and parts

Most equipment within the SLEs is available for use outside of our centres, and can be requested via the online booking form for equipment. The Rural Clinical School can also assist with sourcing equipment for hire externally from other clinical environments if not available on site.
