Basic Simulation Instructor Course

The introduction of simulation in the teaching and training of health professionals implies an adaptation of the teaching methodology and the acquisition of new pedagogical and technical skills. Since clinical simulation is still an emerging area, current health professionals are not prepared to ensure all the aspects that involve it. In this way it is imperative to train the instructors who will develop and maintain the classes and simulation courses.

FMUP since 2015 promotes training in this area following the philosophy and recommendations of the EUSIM group.
