This Master’s degree program is a joint program with the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences and  consists of 10 courses (three courses are taught through USUHS; of the seven courses taught through NPS, four are part of the existing Modeling & Simulation in Healthcare Certificate program). The program focuses on both the fundamentals of modeling and simulation (M&S) and the broad applications of M&S to healthcare training. The intended students for this program are military and U.S. government civilian personnel who work in the DoD Military Healthcare System (MHS), specifically physicians, nurses, administrators, educators and simulation operations specialists. Admission to this program requires the approval of the program sponsor.
