The Center can provide custom courses to meet client needs. One area of expertise the Center excels at is faculty development. The Center has conducted customized simulation faculty development courses with course formats ranging from two days to four days. These courses are conducted at the client’s location and have frequently involved a “train-the-trainer” approach to allow the clients to become self-sufficient.
