The 3-day NYSIM FUSE Course is the ideal immersive experience for all levels of simulation instructors. The course focuses on simulation design, management, and debriefing. Logistically it functions as a workshop where participants will gain the tools to take a problem or issue germane to them, craft their own learning objectives for a simulation, write their own case scenario, create their own checklists of simulation performance, pilot their simulation, and engage in debriefing practice all while receiving feedback from a community of educators. Join us and help light the FUSE to spark your simulation-based education!
