The Society for Simulation in Healthcare (SSH) Board of Directors is pleased to announce the inaugural group of Fellows for the new SSH Academy.
These individuals were selected based on their outstanding contributions to the development of SSH and to the field of healthcare simulation. Their skills and knowledge are a vital component of the Academy's success, as the Fellows will initiate important work to keep our field moving forward
Review of the candidates was a very considered and deliberate process. To give applicants a fair and thorough assessment, reviewers were selected to represent operations, research, EMS, education, nursing, medicine, and industry perspectives in the academic and service settings.
Candidates went through a rigorous review process. Application reviewers sought evidence of sustained contribution and impact to the field of healthcare simulation and to the Society, and a commitment to support the mission and vision of the Academy.
In all, 34 individuals make up this inaugural group, including six from outside the U.S. This group represents the diversity and expertise that will launch the SSH Academy and allow it to achieve its mission and vision.
Please join us in congratulating the following individuals who will be formally inducted into the SSH Academy at the International Meeting for Simulation in Healthcare (IMSH) in Orlando on January 30, 2017:
