Healthcare Simulation Technology Specialists

Healthcare Simulation Technology Specialists work in a team to reproduce realistic healthcare or emergency situations for training health professionals, first responders, other healthcare workers, patients, and caregivers. Performing just as they would in a real-life setting is an ideal way to train people how to provide safe and effective health care.
