Complete your courses online on your schedule, while also getting critical experience during a week-long course at NYIT College of Osteopathic Medicine’s high-fidelity simulation lab.

What You’ll Learn

From hospital-based simulation programs used to train and assess clinical staff to freestanding simulation hospitals designed to recreate the hospital setting and improve outcomes, performance, efficiency, and safety, medical and healthcare simulations are a crucial element of the industry.

This two-year Medical/Healthcare Simulation, M.S. program—completed almost entirely online—will provide a solid foundation for anyone interested in learning to design and run these important simulation programs. Your coursework will span areas including adult learning theory, case design, assessment and exam design, simulation research fundamentals, basic human anatomy/physiology and radiology, and management of a simulation center.

In addition to your online coursework, you’ll get critical experience by spending a week working in NYITCOM’s high-fidelity simulation lab on our Long Island campus, applying the knowledge you have gained by designing and running simulation programs utilizing standardized patients, mannequins, and task trainers.
