Setting High Standards of Excellence

WIMAT's in-house facilities include an up-to-date surgical skills training lab comprising 10 fully equiped training stations,with simulation models. WIMAT offers live links, when requested, to local operating theatres.

WIMAT is currently assisting with the development of intergrated surgical theatres across Wales. This will allow video streming and live links to be accessed by medically allied professions. WIMAT is working closely with satelite centres across the principality to develop specialist courses in both endoscopy and colorectal surgery.

As a regional training centre, WIMAT offers courses from the Royal College of Surgeons of England, the Royal College of obstetricians and Gynaecologists and hosts training courses provided by some of the  world's leading medical suppliers. WIMAT also runs its own internationally acclaimed courses developed in Cardiff.

 

As a flexible training environment, we are happy to facilitate specific training requests and can assist in developing bespoke specialist courses.

Welsh trainees have the opportunity to access WIMAT's facilities to practise simulation procedures such as laparoscopic suturing, endoscopic procedures and other skills.

WIMAT also hires its facilities to other medically allied professions enabling other specialities such as Nutrionalists, Tracheostomy practitioners, cardio Physiologists and others to train in a conducive environment.

WIMAT has been providing internationally recognised education in the art and science of Minimal Access Therapy that is unsurpassed for the last decade and contunues to develop innovative training courses in new surgical technologies.
