Medical Simulation Concentration

The Medical Simulation (Med-Sim) Concentration—offered to students at our PCOMPCOM Georgia and PCOM South Georgia locations—is designed to teach students how to manage and effectively run a simulation center.

Coursework consists of learning, developing, designing and running high-fidelity mannequins, Standardized Patient programs, virtual reality simulations and task trainers for our osteopathic medicine, physician assistant studies, pharmacy, physical therapy and biomedical sciences programs. Students also work with area hospitals, colleges and fire departments building medical simulations to enhance local interprofessional training.
