Welcome to the National Health Education and Training in Simulation (NHET-Sim) website

The NHET-Sim programme is a nationwide training programme for healthcare professionals and their educators aimed at improving clinical training capacity. NHET-Sim is designed for anyone who currently or intends to use simulation as an educational method to support the development of healthcare students and professionals. The programme consists of online modules and in person workshops on simulation-based education and has been developed and reviewed by leaders in the simulation field across Australia and internationally.

The NHET-Sim online modules will be closing on May 31st until July 1st.  If you are already registered with NHET-Sim, then you must download any materials you would like before May 31st.  We will not be accepting new registrations during this period.

We have been working to revise online modules and workshops. The online modules will be accessible to new registrants from July 1st. A program of workshops will be released shortly.

From July 1st, institutional and/or individual fees will apply for NHET-Sim. The schedule of fees will be released soon.

The Department of Health will fund eighteen workshops across Australia in 2016 and 2017. Details of the workshops will be shared in June.

Information on NHET-Sim will also be available through our Facebook group – NHET-Sim Program and on twitter @NHETSim. Please like or follow so you will receive updates.
