The World Health Organisation with the publication of a patient safety curricular guide challenged medical educators to innovate. The patient safety simulated ward at UCC Medical School provides a series of clinical scenarios reflecting commonly encountered antecedents to medical error .

Students rate the experience positively noting the learning afforded by this exposure to autonomous clinical practice.
