Simulation Instructor Training

Healthcare Simulation Essentials: Design and Debriefing (HSEDD)

This course is for internal participants only, as identified by Montana State University. The May 10-14, 2021 course will only be offered online from 10:00AM to 6:00PM US Eastern time. View the course start time in your local time zone. Please contact us with any questions or concerns.

CMS continues to innovate to meet the challenge of these rapidly changing times. This flagship educator course has updated the curriculum to refocus the course on helping participants make a significant, measurable impact on their organization. Participants will learn to work practically and strategically to translate simulation into gains for their learners, colleagues and organization.

To leverage your investment in this course and position your work to have the greatest impact, we will ask you to do some work before you arrive. To get buy-in and support for your program, we will help you identify a real problem that can be addressed with simulation (e.g. patient safety issues, curriculum challenges). We will then integrate your questions and challenges about how to address this organizational problem through interactive small group work.

Participants in the course can expect the exceptional educational experience that the Center for Medical Simulation is known for. Each course will feature several CMS faculty, who will work with learners in small groups to develop curriculum to guide their simulation program, to learn Debriefing with Good Judgment©, and to design simulation courses.

Course Objectives:

  • Develop a strategic plan to elicit buy-in, support and make an impact with simulation in
  • Build a challenging and safe learning environment
  • Conduct, and debrief interprofessional simulation scenarios with high learner engagement
  • Apply the “With Good Judgment” approach to affect behavior change in multiple contexts
  • Think deeply about your role as an educator and/or change agent


The course will take place over 5 consecutive days. It is our belief that this intense learning experience is best accomplished with continuous, individualized mentoring from highly experienced CMS faculty and the development of a peer-led community of practice. The course combines didactic and experiential learning with practice and feedback. Participants will run and debrief simulation cases and receive coaching and feedback on debriefing skills from leading debriefing experts.

How is the online version of the course different?

Using best practices for dynamic, interactive online education, each course day will be a mix of video conference time with faculty, offline time to work alone or in your small group, and periods of down time for rest and reflection. You can count on learning as much from the process of online education in the course as you will from the content.

Technology Requirements

This online course is delivered via Zoom, a web conferencing platform, and the CMS Virtual Campus, a learning management system. All materials and course interactions will occur online. In order to participate fully, each participant must have:

  • Their own computer (tablets and mobile phones do not allow full engagement )
  • Reliable high-speed internet access (minimum 3 Mbps upload/download speed)
  • Microphone and speakers (built-in, headset or from webcam)
  • Webcam

Each individual – even those participants who are from the same institution – needs his or her own computer and computer headset (microphone and earphones). We highly encourage you to have a webcam to enrich our interactions.
