The Center for Medical Simulation’s Australian affiliate, Mater Education, has partnered with the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) Institute of Health Professions to provide post-graduate certification for Australian medical educators.

This program is now available to Mater Education’s Simulation Fellows, who will do their MGH Institute coursework remotely with the guidance of Mater faculty. This certificate also requires fellows to complete CMS’ “Simulation as a Teaching Tool” program, which is put on in Brisbane, Australia. 

Mater Education’s will initially send two fellows through the MGH Institute of Health Professions program, to earn their post-graduate certifications in education with a specialization in simulation. These two fellows, Dominic Ormston, MD, and Richard Mausling, MD, will work to develop simulation courses to serve Mater Education learners in the future. Dr. Ormston will develop emergency response courses for the anesthesia department, while Dr. Mausling will develop simulation training for staff and nurses in the Mater Mother’s Hospital Neonatal Critical Care Unit.
