Simulation-based education is an accepted teaching methodology within many disciplines, but has yet to be fully integrated into the clinical education models of speech-language pathology and audiology. Simulation-based education is an innovative opportunity to enhance clinical education in the fields of speech-language pathology and audiology.

The benefits of simulation-based education will be reviewed relative to the existing literature both within and outside the professions.
