Medical Simulation Concentration 
MS in Biomedical Sciences

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.


Medical Simulation Program Highlights

Students in the Medical Simulation Concentration will:

  • Develop 30 simulations individually including two interprofessional simulations.
    Run approximately 2,000 simulations.
  • Obtain certification in Basic Life Support (CPR) through the American Heart Association.
  • Receive training in ACLS (Advanced Cardiac Life Support).
  • Complete the National Registry Emergency Medicine Technician Basic EMT course.
  • Become certified as "Train the Trainers in Stop the Bleed."


After completing the foundation year coursework, students may progress to the second-year degree concentration.

Career Options

Upon completion of the program, students will have the knowledge to serve as directors, managers and medical directors of simulation centers.
