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.
