Abstract: The PediSTARS Faculty Development Program is a novel approach for simulation faculty training with an aim to increase the pool of trained simulation faculty in India and neighboring countries that could then facilitate simulation-based training, both at their own workplaces and in the PediSTARS simulation-based workshops that provide training in pediatric and neonatal emergencies. This commentary describes the evolution of the faculty development program, the initial process, the feedback obtained, the changes undertaken, the progress made to date, and the challenges ahead. There is also an emphasis on the key generalizable principles that can be applicable to other low-resource settings.
