Healthcare Modeling and Simulation Graduate Certificate Program

Healthcare Modeling and Simulation Certificate

The Naval Postgradute School, in partnership with the Uniformed Services Univeristy of the Health Sciences, have collaborated to design and deliver a distance learning educational program for healthcare simulation professionals.  This program focuses on the effective use of modeling and simulation in the healthcare domain.  The materials developed have been reviewed and incorporated into an efficient, interactive, fast-paced certificate program for working professionals.

The certificate requires the completion of four courses, comprising of 16 credit hours of work at the graduate level.  These courses form a coherent sequence to equip the certificate student with the core skills necessary to manage a modeling and simulation education and research program which can be completed in 12 months.
