Quality-assured patient care is often looked upon as a combination of adequacy, accuracy, and promptness regardless of the settings. Simulation has been acknowledged as an important aspect of medical training as it immensely reduces the probability of errors done by a freshly passed student either in elective or emergency settings. The process of learning is encouraged through immersive learning, reflection by the students on their own performance, and through the feedback given by the teacher who is present. The inclusion of simulation in medical education helps the students to become competent in responding to real-life scenarios in an organized manner without jeopardizing the ethical or legal rights of the patients. In conclusion, the employment of simulation in medical education aids in the improvement of the professional performance of the medical students and ensures the safety of the patients. Thus, all the medical colleges should aim for its gradual introduction within their implemented curriculum and give a number of learning opportunities to the students.
