King Saud bin Abdulaziz University for Health Sciences, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

This mixed method study was planned to assess the medical students' experience with simulation-based learning and to identify the issues associated with the application of simulation-based education for experiential learning. Quantitative and qualitative data was collected respectively through a structured questionnaire answered by 145 undergraduate medical students and focus group interviews with six internees who experienced and practised clinical skills with simulators during academic years at King Saud bin Abdulaziz University for Health Sciences, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, between March and April 2017. Although overall respondents were satisfied with simulation-based education, lower satisfaction was identified in areas of available facilities, allocated time for skill labs and debriefing sessions. Three emerging themes that affected simulation-based education were identified as: shared benefits, professional development, and support and improved governance. Several important areas that needed improvement were recognised. The outcome of the study can be used to include more practice on simulators and skilled tutors.
