Part 3: Facilitation Experience

The final and most important component of the course will involve experiential learning so that you can learn about facilitating a simulation in practice. Our GH Sim team will work with you to find two opportunities to co-facilitate an in-person or e-sim. Depending on your location and availability we can also be available to co-facilitate and provide feedback by videoconferencing.

Part 4: Receive Your Global Health Sim Facilitator Certificate

Following the successful completion of the course, you will receive a Global Health Sim Facilitator Certificate. You will have access to our network and resources, and be able to facilitator Global Health Sims.
