Across all our course options, participants learn in our world-class simulation labs, across our exceptional hospitals and with our passionate and highly trained staff.

How we improve the workplace through simulation

Mater Education has exclusively partnered with the internationally renowned Center for Medical Simulation (CMS) in Boston, USA. As the only Affiliate Partner in Australia and one of only three in the world, Mater Education and its alumni have an exclusive level of access to the resources, skills, advice and experience of a team who are international leaders in the field of clinical simulation.

It is through this partnership that Mater Education can deliver, develop, implement and evaluate simulation programs to help organisations improve their knowledge, skills and teamwork to establish a confident and competent health workforce.
