Simulation Program


The Learning Institute’s Simulation Program was awarded a five-year Accreditation by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada


About the Program 

The Simulation Program is an ever expanding diverse collaborative that has been in formal operation since 2009. The program consists of an impressive network that includes a Simulation Centre, three Satellite units, as well as in-situ and outreach simulation. Through the support of a unique interprofessional steering committee, the Simulation Program provides procedural skills training as well as individual and team training for clinical and non-clinical learners. A team of Simulation Coordinator Educators support Simulation Instructors by assisting with scenario development, matching learning objectives with appropriate simulation modality and providing professional development opportunities featuring simulation-enhanced education. In 2013, the Simulation Program became Accredited by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. 

Role in Learning 

The Simulation Program develops and delivers high quality simulation-enhanced education for staff, students, and academic trainees. By providing engaging learning opportunities, professional development and skill enhancement, the Program enables learners and educators from a variety of clinical areas at SickKids. Our close link with the Learning Institute’s Education Research team ensures evidence based simulation-enhanced education and innovation within the field.
 


The Simulation Program supports +4,000 participants in +400 sessions annually
