Student Simulation Internship

The Simulation Internship has been designed to help early-career health professionals develop their expertise in simulation-based education (SBE) methodologies. The components of this internship offer an opportunity to build skills in designing, implementing, and evaluating simulation-based educational activities and assessments. Interns will gain experiences with a wide range of simulation technologies, standardized patients, educational methodologies, and assessment strategies.

  • Evidence and Theory Based SBE
  • Operations
  • Research
  • Leadership
  • Administration


Internship Benefits:
  • Research experience
  • Opportunities to expand medical knowledge and procedural skill
  • Foundational knowledge in simulation methodology and technology
  • A competitive edge in the residency or job application process

Interns are mentored by simulation center staff and work closely with the staff to complete a capstone project that applies the knowledge and skills gained and contributes personally, professionally, and meaningfully to the university’s health professions community.  Our simulation internship is an unpaid position. The internship is nine months long and begins in May, although start and stop dates may be negotiable.  Interns are expected to be present approximately 20 hours per week. For more information please review our informational flyer.
