This curriculum is designed to prepare individuals to teach, remediate, and evaluate healthcare providers using different forms of healthcare simulation. Course work includes the day-to-day operations of a multidisciplinary healthcare simulation lab. Students will learn how to operate low, mid, and high-fidelity simulation mannequins, various task trainers, audiovisual tools used in simulation and managing standardized patient programs. Graduates of the Healthcare Simulation Technology program will be eligible for employment opportunities at hospitals, public and private educational institutions, emergency medical services agencies, and simulation centers. Qualifying graduates may be eligible to take the national Certified Healthcare Simulation Educator (CHSE) exam.
