Simulation Technology Program – Associate of Applied Science Degree

Simulation in healthcare is an exciting field that provides a simulated environment with the used of high-fidelity manikins that breath, blink, talk, bleed, and sweat. Many medical procedures can be performed on the realistic manikins in real time to simulate the real-life experience of patient care.

The Medical Simulation Associate in Applied Science degree prepares students for entry-level employment in simulation centers and laboratories. Simulations are beneficial to all levels of healthcare providers, first responders, and military personnel.

To meet the growing need for training simulation professionals, the Simulation Technology program will develop students who can implement simulation scenarios, conduct manikin programming, establish maintenance standards, develop interpersonal relationships, and promote community engagement. Upon completion of the Medical Simulation Associate in Applied Science degree, students are prepared to take industry certification exams validating their skills.
