Simulation education provides many new learning opportunities to healthcare training. This article delineates a method that utilizes a variety of teaching methods that include structured lecture-based education, active simulation-based education, and reflective inquiry. A course in pharmacology is used as an example to show how these different methods can be employed to offer students an immersive experience that reinforces traditional lecture-based learning. The paper is presented in such a way that it is easily applied to multiple situations and includes schematics, evaluation data, and equipment lists. Evaluation data strongly supported the continued use of this methodology.
