Gone are the days when medical education was focused on subjective learning through real-world patients. Simulation has revolutionized medical education as a whole. It is a form of learning to experience something without actually going through it in reality. It not only provides opportunities for medical students to learn from an event-based platform, but also makes them avoid errors in patient care without compromising patient safety. It promotes “hands-on” training for undergraduates from an earlier point in their education. Simulation was first introduced by Aviation industry and soon its benefits in medical education were explored. Simulation has brought about innovation in medical curriculum. It ensures laying emphasis on communication skills, team work, and decision-making along with inculcating ethical knowledge. Simulation is hence a tool to bridge the gap between classroom learning and patient care and promotes experience-based learning.
