Assessment, Debriefing, Comprehensive, and Development are just a few words that describe WISER’s Improving Simulation Instructional Methods (iSIM) course.  

iSIM is a three (3)-day immersive program designed to cover the fundamental skills for the creation and delivery of high quality simulation-based healthcare education through a variety of techniques and technologies while emphasizing hands-on learning through active participation.

The program is intended for healthcare professionals and educators who are interested in improving their instructional skills. Each participant will engage in an interactive experience and gain knowledge and skills to enhance their ability to design and conduct simulation-based learning and assessment activities.

The course has been designed and is actively facilitated by internationally renowned experts in simulation and faculty development from WISER at The University of Pittsburgh, and The Gordon Center for Research in Medical Education at the University of Miami. This course will prepare educators to enhance their skills using simulation methods.
