Overview of our staff
CEKU and DIMS became CAMES in 2015
CAMES is a fusion of Danish Institute for Medical Simulation (DIMS) and Centre for Clinical Education (CEKU). The demand for CEKU and DIMS' services and facilities was increasing so the obvious solution was to combine them into one academy. The intention behind the academy is to contribute to education, research and development on the highest international level now and in the future.
