Simulation Fellowship and Visiting Scholars Program

The Center for Medical Simulation (CMS) Simulation Fellowship and Visiting Scholars Program in simulation-based healthcare education is designed to provide learners with the skills necessary to develop, implement, manage, and assess healthcare simulation-based programs. The curriculum for this primarily non-clinical program is customized to meet the needs of the learner, ideally during a 6-12 month visit, or longer as desired. The learner experiences most aspects of healthcare simulation-based education, advancing their skills as an instructor, debriefer and leader of healthcare simulation-based activities.

Shorter periods of scholarship can be arranged as suits the needs of the learner on a case-by-case basis.

Applicant Qualifications

Nursing or medical degrees equivalent to the RN, NP, CNM, MD or DO degrees awarded in the US, or other allied health professions degrees, with a minimum of two years in clinical practice and high motivation to pursue advanced training in simulation-based healthcare education.

A record of achievement in healthcare education, as provided by letters of reference, publications, teaching evaluations, or prior specialized training or experience in medical education is desired, but not required.
