CMS Simulation as a Teaching Tool

Simulation as a Teaching Tool is hosted by Mater Education, and delivered by the Center for Medical Simulation through its Institute of Medical Simulation instructor training program.

This intensive four-day training program is designed to develop your skills in delivering safe and effective simulation-based learning.

Drawing on the disciplines of aviation, healthcare, psychology, experiential learning and organisational behaviour, you’ll learn how to teach clinical, behavioural and cognitive skills through simulation.

You’ll explore simulator-based teaching methods applicable across the healthcare education spectrum, including undergraduate and graduate medical, nursing and allied health domains.
