Faculty members play a vital role within simulation.  Their ability to coach and mentor the student in a non-threatening manner is fundamental to the success of the simulation learning experience.  The diverse roles of the faculty are to:

  • Design the curriculum

  • Develop the learning outcomes

  • Time management

  • Sequencing of learning

  • Unfold the case scenario

  • Assessing the student’s knowledge, skill and judgement

  • Facilitate the debriefing

  • Be sensitive to the learner’s emotional well being

  • Programme the simulator

  • Care of the equipment
