    The advent of the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in medical technology education transitioning from traditional face-to-face classes to online classes, which were delivered through online platforms and online laboratories. Along with these changes, the levels of confidence and satisfaction of students may have been affected. The former affects their willingness to participate while the latter keeps the students engaged in the continuous learning process. With this, the study aims to assess the satisfaction and self-confidence levels of 3rd-year medical technology students regarding the simulation activities utilized during the Enriched Virtual Mode of delivery. A survey questionnaire was used to gather the socio-demographic information and the levels of satisfaction and self-confidence of 293 medical technology students from the University of Santo Tomas in relation to their use of  simulation activities during the Enriched Virtual Mode of delivery. The software IBM SPSS was used to analyze the data gathered statistically through descriptive statistics of mean and standard deviation, Spearman’s rank correlation, the Mann-Whitney test, and the Kruskal-Wallis one-way analysis. Results exhibited that a strong positive correlation is observed between the satisfaction and self-confidence of the respondents regarding their simulation activities. However, the relationship between satisfaction regarding the simulation activities and the respondents’ age and gender was weakly positive and negligible. There was also a negligible positive correlation between the socio-demographic variables and the satisfaction of the respondents, and a negligible negative correlation between the socio-demographic variables and the self-confidence of the respondents
