Forsslund Systems winner of open competition
Virtual Oral, Maxillo-Facial Surgery Simulator
at Rīga Stradiņš University
In june 2011 Rīga Stradiņš University announced that they were building an all-new Medical Education Technology Centre of RSU, one of the first intellectual innovation hubs in medicine and healthcare in the Baltics.
The announcement said:
Pertaining to the University’s long-term strategic development plan, the Technology Centre will offer local and international medical and healthcare students the opportunity to use the advantages of advanced technological features throughout their study period.
The Centre’s computerised training and lecture rooms will be equipped with up-to-date simulator systems and phantoms. “The study process will considerably gain in efficiency as long as we keep introducing the recent technological achievements in our University. We are looking forward to developing new high-quality programmes for international rehabilitation, medical, nursery and public health students,” says Professor Jānis Gardovskis, Rector of RSU.
The Medical Education Technology Centre can also be viewed as another step towards the world-class standard in medical and healthcare education that is the objective structured clinical examination (OSCE)
In line with this Rīga Stradiņš University called for open tenders in July 2012 to get simulators for the Centre. One of the calls was for Virtual Oral, Maxillo-Facial simulators.
November 2012 Forsslund Systems can announce that the RSU Procurement Commission has chosen us as the winner of the open competition.
January 9-13 2013 the equipment was delivered by Ebba Kierkegaard, Martin Flodin and Hans Forsslund. An open lecture was given about the system. Hands on training, for all teachers at the Oral and Maxillo-Facial Department, were performed during the days in Riga.
