The VCH Regional Simulation Program's vision is to "Lead learning through the use of simulation-based education, and to partner with stakeholders in order to realize our workforce's potential."
Our multidisciplinary team strives to enable VCH staff to deliver quality patient care and care improvements through:
- Expertise in simulation theory and application
- Access to a wide range of simulation equipment
- Coaching and staffing for optimal simulation execution
- Promotion of interprofessional education
In short, our vision is to achieve and support excellence in healthcare simulation.
The VCH Regional Simulation Program is a national leader in the theory and application of healthcare simulation-based education methodology. We offer a suite of courses and 1:1 coaching for VCH staff on how to implement this exciting, innovate method of education and practice.
For more information, see our Simulation Facilitator Development infographic. Link to VCH staff can register for these courses through the Simulation Facilitator Development curriculum on the Learning Hub.

The healthcare simulation community finds value and benefit in the free, open-access movement. We have contributed to this #FOAMsim community through the sharing of a wealth of resources for simulation-based activities. To access these, please visit our program's page on the BC Simulation Network website.
VCH is home to two simulation centres. Please follow the links for more information about each centre.
