Board of Directors

SSH Members elect individuals to serve in these important positions. Board Members have the opportunity to share their talent and knowledge to help shape SSH and the future of simulation in healthcare. To be on the Board, individuals must be a current member in good standing and have been a member for at least two years. In addition, these individuals must have performed at least one year of service in an SSH leadership role.

Elections are done during the fall with the new Board Members taking office after IMSH each year. Length of service for each position is defined in the SSH Bylaws.  Contact Andrea Burtnick if you have any questions about the SSH Board.
