“What a fantastic experience! Being a surgeon for a morning is an experience that is both different and fascinating. The morning spent with the staff at the Simulation Unit at Wellington Hospital was one of the most absorbing and interesting few hours I have spent. I learned a huge amount about so many things – it wasn’t merely a simulation exercise, but a world of adventure. Intubating a patient and examining an appendix were fantastic. Learning to suture was challenging. How do surgeons get those stitches so neat? The mannequins are very life-like and I loved learning about their “abilities” – Kay Phillips
