New York College of Osteopathic Medicine of NYIT (NYCOM) is proud to announce its new Master of Science in Medical Education/Health Care Simulation.
The first such graduate program in the United States, this 44-credit degree program prepares students for careers in the growing field of human patient simulation. Patient simulation educators use standardized patients, mannequin-based simulations, and computer-based simulations to teach and assess professional skills at medical and nursing schools, hospitals, and medical licensing boards. Human simulations are also used in law schools and graduate schools of professional psychology.
