In the 21st century, medicine alongside with medical education, is a dynamically developing industry, and is experiencing a real renaissance of its development. New technologies are gradually replacing the old methods, which undoubtedly increases the quality of provided services, reducing the probability of medical errors, and favourably affects the mortality rate (for example, echocardiography, both transthoracic and intra-oesophageal, has replaced percussion and heart palpation). However, relatively old methods, for example, such as auscultation of the heart, still do not lose their significance or effectiveness, in particular, it is worth noting the high information content of this instrumental examination when dealing with valvular pathologies of the heart (for example, critical aortic stenosis). It is known that any educational institution, in particular, a medical one, must keep abreast of the times and correspond to modern needs. The management of medical universities, making long-term strategies for their development, in order to increase competitiveness, both their own and the one of their students, should maximally provide their clinics with the latest equipment, which will undoubtedly allow preserving its niche, perhaps at the regional or world level. For example, the Yerevan State Medical University named after Mkhitar Heratsi is of inter-regional importance, being the leading medical educational institution among the countries of the Caucasus and the Anterior Asia. In the process of introducing new technologies among students of medical universities, a competence-based approach is the opening of highly equipped imulation centres, where the future doctor and/or a certain doctor will be given a unique in the medical world chance, a chance for error, since it is well-known that a doctor's mistake can cost life of the whole people. This article is devoted to the pivotal role of the simulation centre within the modern educational system of medical universities as well as the strategy for its construction.
