About Medical Simulation Positions
Healthcare Simulation Technician: A Healthcare Simulation Technician is a professional who works to implement, develop, participate in and operate healthcare simulation activities to guarantee a safe, high-quality, and consistent clinical simulation experience. They are also responsible for assisting in the management of a center’s infrastructure to ensure that student privacy, operational efficiency, limited downtime, and learning objectives are all met.
Healthcare Simulation Techs will also troubleshoot and resolve any technical and logistical issues, and operate a healthcare simulation capture system to ensure activities are videotaped. Other responsibilities of these professionals include: providing first and second level repairs and preventative maintenance to simulation resources; ensuring that equipment and supplies are used and maintained properly; planning, developing, and manufacturing materials and techniques for executing moulage and task trainers; and maintaining current simulation related knowledge, communications and customer service.
To become a Healthcare Simulation Technology Specialist, professionals are minimally required to have an associate’s degree, but a Bachelor’s Degree is highly recommended. Those that possess three to five years of healthcare simulation experience will find themselves very desirable as the profession is so new! Certification as a Certified Healthcare Simulation Technology Specialist (CHSOS) in this field is also strongly preferred.
Healthcare Simulation Educator: A Healthcare Simulation Educator is part of a team whose goal is to develop and implement clinical simulation-based education and training designed to enhance patient safety and quality during healthcare delivery. These professionals are responsible for the coordination of a number of key healthcare simulation programs delivered by an educational center including the development of educational programs, teaching, coordination, and administrative tasks. Depending on the particular facility, the Simulation Educator may also assist with clinical session preparation and break-down, the operation of simulators, and by taking the role of faculty actor in immersive simulation training sessions.
Healthcare Simulation Educators may have earned at minimum a Bachelor’s of Nursing degree, but typically have Advanced healthcare degrees in Nursing (MSN), Medicine (MD), Education (Ph.D.), or similar. The underlying academic degree depends to some extent on the requirements of the institution where the simulation takes place. Some degrees can be in education, healthcare, or a related field.
Healthcare Simulation Administrator: A Healthcare Simulation Administrator is responsible for the administration, strategy, management, and leadership of a simulation educational or training program. These professionals manage and oversee all aspects of staffing, create and oversee policies and procedures, liaison between all collaborative stakeholders, support training, educational, and research program development, as well as promote and represent the program.
To gain employment as a Healthcare Simulation Director, learners should obtain a master’s degree and ideally multiple years of related experience in either healthcare, technology, management, or education. Oftentimes, a master’s degree in a nursing-related field and a current registered nurse license are strongly preferred, however, other areas of study may be suitable.
