This project was made possible generous support from RSA Morton Award (for photography and film) which I received in 2014.  I have been documenting the robotic patients used for medical teaching at the Scottish Centre for Simulation at Forth Valley Royal Hospital, Larbert as well as looking at global trends in Medical Simulation with visits to NYSim in Manhattan, New York and others in North America. Thank you to RSA and the Morton Award committee for this valuable opportunity.  The project has taken me to even more wonderful places in what feels like a hidden world.  I am absolutely fascinated by the world of medical simulation and feel very much at the beginning of a larger global project.  I welcome suggestions of funding sources to continue this work. Thanks also to the staff at all the simulation centres I visited in 2013, 2014 and 2015. Especially to […]
