Who is CAMES?

CAMES brings together the research, development and teaching activities of the Capital Region in the field of medical and surgical simulation. Organisationally, CAMES belongs to the Capital Region's Centre for HR & Educationand is physically located at two addresses - respectively under the names CAMES Rigshospitalet and CAMES Herlev.

What does CAMES do?

All activities - courses, research and services - related to technical simulation belong to CAMES Rigshospitalet, Ryesgade 53B. Here on CAMES.dk you can explore and read more. All activities focusing on team-based training and full-scale simulation belong to CAMES Herlev.

CAMES together with the Section for E-Learning(RegionH E-Learning) form the unit called Simulation and E-Learning. While CAMES focuses on simulation training, the E-Learning Section focuses on the development of e-learning courses and other learning, mediated through e.g. video, podcasts, animations, virtual reality and gamification. CAMES and the Learning Technologies Section work closely together.

In addition to being a world-leading research institution in medical education, CAMES is also a developer and manufacturer of supporting hardware and software for its activities.

3D Print

3D printing allows the clinic to print patient-specific cases based on CT scans. It can be used for example for teaching, patient orientation, treatment or surgery planning. It provides a tangible 3D element that fully reflects the case at hand. 3D printing can also be used non-specifically to rehearse rare cases that clinicians otherwise only see a few times a year. 3D printing can also be used to produce so-called 'gizmos' that are missing in the department.

The centre consists of a printer farm of 10 printers, covering the classic FDM printers as well as a single SLA printer, which offers the possibility to print different materials.
