Interprofessional Healthcare Simulation, MSc

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.

Alongside health professionals, we've tailored our Master’s to appeal to healthcare simulation technicians. We recognise that inclusivity can be a significant draw for many in the field and as a result we would encourage those with hands-on simulation experience as well as those with a formal degree, to apply. This sets us apart from many other courses.
