Rural Simulation Education Program

Simulation is the act of imitating or representing a 'real-life' situation or process from the simple to the very complex.

In healthcare, simulation is used as a highly effective and efficient way to train and assess healthcare practitioners. It is also a mode of research.

Simulation is an important and effective education modality in HETI’s approach to training NSW health professionals. HETI supports a wide variety of simulation based educational methodologies and technologies – from specialised simulation centres to actor based learning – to support a capable workforce delivering excellent patient care.

HETI's work in simulation reinforces the requirements of:

  • The Health Professional Workforce Plan 2012-2022
  • NSW Rural Health Plan: Towards 2021
  • HETI Strategic Plan
