Our Healthcare Simulation courses are designed for current Medical Students and Professionals.
The certificate in healthcare and medical simulation will prepare the student to design, implement, evaluate and operate simulation-based education in undergraduate and postgraduate healthcare teaching environments. On completion of the certificate the student will be able to use task-based trainers, high and low- fidelity mannequins, standardised patients, virtual, and hybrid simulators.
The course is delivered as much as possible through distance learning online. This delivery method allows the student to study at a time that is convenient to them, no matter where they live. The modules are delivered using a combination of multi-media presentations, online discussion boards, and online tutorials. There will also be a need to attend two days of intensive hands on training in using a range of simulators carried out at NUI Galway.
