About the Program

Students pursuing the certificate program in Healthcare Simulation Technology will be prepared to serve as operational specialists in healthcare simulation labs. This 16-hour certificate program will provide an overview of how simulation is integrated into healthcare disciplines, types of simulation, preventative and corrective maintenance and repair of simulation equipment, an understanding of disease processes and pharmacology, and scenario design and basic programming. The curriculum in the certificate program is aligned with the Society for Simulation in Healthcare’s Certified Healthcare Simulation Operations Specialist® (CHSOS) certification.

This program is an executive-style online program with one week-long on-campus visit during the first semester.

Who Should Apply?

  • Credentialed healthcare providers across a range of disciplines looking to diversify their education or teaching portfolio; or
