SSH Accreditation of Healthcare Simulation Programs
Achieve recognition for your healthcare simulation program
Set your program apart by becoming an SSH Accredited Program. SSH Accreditation is a peer-reviewed, customized evaluation of your healthcare simulation program. This accreditation examines simulation program's processes and outcomes in assessment, research, teaching/education, and systems integration.
Expanding quality healthcare simulation worldwide
The SSH Council for Accreditation of Healthcare Simulation Programs accredited its first Healthcare Simulation Program in 2010. Since then, 54 Healthcare Simulation Programs in six countries have been accredited. Learn more about Full Accreditation.
The Standards fit any healthcare simulation program
The Standards of Performance were developed with all programs in mind. The Standards are not prescriptive but instead describe the desired outcomes and processes that are hallmarks of quality healthcare simulation. SSH Accreditation is designed for simulation programs in:
- Academic/University settings
- Medical Associations
- Stand-alone facilities
- Other educational settings
If your program is new to simulation, or doesn't have two years of outcomes data to share, consider SSH Provisional Accreditation. You'll receive constructive feedback from healthcare simulation experts regarding processes and outcome development, validate your simulation program through a peer review process, and much more.
