Oxford Medical Simulation

Hello Students,


During the COVID-19 outbreak, we are working with Oxford Medical Simulation to provide you with screen-based simulation experiences. The scenarios you'll see were created to be used both in Immersive Virtual Reality (via headset) and on-screen - you will be using the screen-based version (OMS: Distance), which can be downloaded onto your computer.


You will each receive a separate email from or which will invite you to create your own individual account. It is important that everyone has their own account so that the performance data from your simulation scenario gets tracked appropriately.


Please see the PDF (below) for end-to-end instructions for creating your account, downloading/installing the platform, and understanding how to run through scenarios and view your feedback. This works best on Google Chrome.


Please note that it will be extremely helpful for you to view the instructional videos embedded in the PDF below prior to downloading the software.
