Marie Hall SimLife Center, Covenant Health System Endowed Chair in Simulation and Nursing Education, has been involved in resource capacity building related to the pedagogy of simulation at Sillmann University, Dumaguette City for the past 5 years.

Chris Esperat, RN, PhD, FAAN, associate dean of Clinical Services and Community Engagement, School of Nursing, has been involved in resource capacity building at Silliman University, Dumaguete City for over five years. She was part of the leadership team that established the initiative to revitalize primary health care in Dumaguete City.

This presentation will provide a brief background on the country and university in which this activity occurred and discuss the process of training an interprofessional team of faculty at Silliman University in Dumaguete City, Philippines in the effective use of clinical simulation for student learning.
