Course Summary

This Master’s degree in Interprofessional Healthcare Simulation will develop your knowledge, skills and confidence to autonomously design, deliver, manage and evaluate healthcare related simulations. This innovative course aims to embody the definition of interprofessional healthcare simulation. Simulation in this context refers to a spectrum of activity from simple role playing, through to simulated patients, part-task trainers, hybrid models, full body manikins and immersive simulated environments. The interprofessional element refers to anyone who may be involved in the design, delivery or evaluation of simulation activities, whether it be technicians, healthcare professionals or academics.

This programme is underpinned by a master’s level award encompassing gained skills in leadership, management, education and research with a demonstration of core capabilities and field specific competence. You will have the option to join a multidisciplinary simulation research group that is part of a wider initiative to advance the field of simulation. This is the only course of its kind to include an Economic Evaluation of Simulation and Transformative Simulation as standalone modules.

The Employability and Careers Service provides support when you are preparing to apply for placements and graduate roles. It includes CV clinics, mock interviews and employability skills workshops. Each School also has its own Employability Officer, who works closely with the industry and will provide specific opportunities relevant to your own course.
