Course Summary

This course gave me important tools for my professional development and the possible next steps to my professional life. I feel the course provides the basic knowledge to deliver satisfactory simulation teaching which will benefit the working environment.


This course will develop your professional practice, both as an educator and, in deeper understanding of the practical applications of your learning translated into the workplace, to provide high quality care and professional development to enhance the experience and outcomes of service users.

Based within the Institute of Medical Sciences, a centre of excellence for postgraduate medical education and research, you will have access to cutting-edge simulation facilities to aid your learning and development.

The generic and comprehensive design of the course supports all students from a wide variety of professions and roles to apply learning to their individual circumstances and develop advanced multi-professional practice. The delivery keeps both the learner and the service-user at the heart of the process, including engagement with contributions from service-users via an innovative collaborative Impact Forum.

Your future career

Enhancing your knowledge and understanding will contribute to your career progression and evidence that you are advancing practice according with professional skills frameworks. In addition, the skills you gain will enable you to write for professional journals and/or present at conferences, sharing best practice and raising your professional profile. Your postgraduate qualification could also help you to stand out in an increasingly competitive employment market, supporting you to consider senior, specialist or advanced roles within the health and social care arena, the independent and voluntary sector or education.

Students can also exit with PGCert and PGDip awards.


You will work in small groups to both design a simulation learning event and experience other students? designs, the whole process undergoing peer scrutiny. The module thoroughly addresses the generic operational management of simulation.
