Course content

This Postgraduate Certificate in Simulation and Clinical Learning is a modular course which aims to develop a critical understanding of how simulation can be deployed to enhance teaching, learning and assessment in the field of healthcare.

Simulation can be defined as emulating a real life situation in a controlled (non-real) environment, to safely provide a life-like experience. This creates the opportunity to act, reflect and obtain feedback to assist in achieving competence and progression towards expert level through deliberate and repeated practice in an ascending learning spiral.

The programme will be run on a multi-professional basis, allowing practitioners, managers and clinical educators from different professions and locations to share their knowledge, experience and skills.
