Mississippi Academy for Simulation Training

In 2017, the Hearin Foundation provided a four-year grant to the University of Mississippi Medical Center to begin the Mississippi Academy for Simulation Training (MAST). The MAST mission is to provide statewide simulation educator training, access to the UMMC Simulation Center, and communicate a statewide expectation for recognition of the value of pedagogically advanced training curricula, contemporary educational/workplace communication techniques, and the highest ethical standards in the use of simulation in health care education. 


The vision of MAST is to enhance lifelong learning among faculty, staff, students, and the community by enhancing the professional development of health care leaders throughout Mississippi, which will enhance patient safety and the quality of health care through the use of high-fidelity simulation technology.
