Simulation involves re-creating the reality of the healthcare setting using computerized mannequins, task trainers or trained actors to play the role of the patient, and allows for controlled and standardized conditions for education, research and training purposes. This interactive learning strategy is a revolutionary approach for educating healthcare providers across all levels, in both academic and service settings.
The Leadership in Simulation Management certificate program (online) prepares health science educators to plan and implement evidence-based simulation instruction and to manage simulation teaching/learning systems.
The purpose of this online, graduate-level certificate program is to offer health sciences educators the opportunity to gain current knowledge and experience in techniques related to simulation facilitation, instruction, and leadership. Participants will be able to:
The Leadership in Simulation Instruction and Management certificate curriculum is designed for the working adult professional and includes the following 8-week-online courses:
The online certificate program can be completed in less than 27 weeks and meets the needs of working adults by providing asynchronous learning activities that can accommodate all types of schedules. Students are admitted twice a year.
RMU understands that it's difficult to find time in your busy schedule. That's why the Leadership in Simulation Management certification program is offered in a fully online format for your convenience.
Simulation offers the ability to practice skills in the safe environment of a simulation lab while minimizing the risk to patients, and includes the use of computerized patient mannequins, task trainers, virtual reality, and standardized patients. Educators must develop an understanding of this challenging technique in order to meet the needs of our future students and healthcare providers. Completion of this certificate program gives educators in academic and service settings the knowledge and skills to implement simulation technology for learning and assessment. Earn graduate credit while you learn how to implement this specialized skill and manage your simulation lab. Graduates will be prepared to utilize simulation to meet the future needs of healthcare providers, with the ultimate goal of providing safe quality patient care.
