Moulage and simulators maintenance

Training is aimed at professionals interested in aesthetic repair of simulators, as well as learning moulage techniques.

  • Learn the properties of different types of silicone and when to use them.
  • Get knowledge in repairing, gluing and patching silicone cracks.
  • Learn how to do moulage with silicone, gelatin, and wax.

Silicone-based clinical simulators are subjected to constant use in the education of medical students and professionals. Their continuous use leads to the occurrence of cracks, which often require sending the simulator to outside companies for repair, increasing costs and, most importantly, not having it available for an indefinite period of time.

Knowledge and use of repair materials will help ensure the center’s autonomy, reducing costs and readiness time for reuse. These materials are also used for moulage, so we can learn how to make our simulations more realistic.

The training will be conducted by a special effects makeup artist and modeler from the Joe Blasco Makeup Center in Los Angeles, California


The training is conducted in English.
