Certificate, Health Sciences, Post-baccalaureate Certificate Simulation in Healthcare Education

Today, medical simulation is a vital component of educational services offered to healthcare students, residents, nursing staff, ancillary health care professionals and practicing physicians throughout the world. Simulation-based medical education offers a consistent clinical learning experience without risk to patients. It also offers a psychologically safe and supportive learning environment for the student/trainee. Creating such learning environments requires a specialized skill set. Therefore, the need for improved and expanded educator skills is needed to improve simulation based learning. This need creates a demand for specialized courses/programs in simulation-based education based in the framework of health professions.

There are approximately 47 simulation centers in colleges, universities, and hospitals around the state of Florida. Each of these facilities requires trained content and technology experts to develop, execute, and evaluate comprehensive simulation education programs. This certificate will provide you, as a current practitioner, an opportunity to expand your knowledge to support your organization's simulation-based medical education program.
