We describe a clinical-skills based approach to teaching medical and public health students the health effects of climate change.  This resource presents eleven simulation exercises used with over 100 students, and reports on the students' work.  Students are eager to learn clinical skills, and existing curricula offer a range of simulated standardized patients and other active learning exercises that could be modified to provide training on climate change.

Hi, it is an amazing document and I am planning to develop some simulation scenarios as T/L methods and also for assessment in climate change and health courses. It is great that I came across these resources and I will share with you all the simulation scenarios I develop and also looking forward to learn and collaborate with you all.
