THE PULSE - Please welcome Rachel Araujo! > The Society for Simulation in Healthcare

With huge excitement, I am pleased to start this update with the announcement of our new SSH Director of Certification, Rachel Araujo!

Rachel comes to us from SMT/Prometric, the test development and delivery company with which we have worked with since 2011. She has been our key point of contact and knows our certifications and exam development process — and has been involved in every stage.

Many of you know her already. For those who do not, she is a great addition to our staff and will take our certification programs into the next evolution — very exciting!

Rachel will be starting with SSH on August 1, so you will see her soon!

NEW: SSH Speakers Bureau!

The SSH Academy is very pleased to announce the launch of our Speakers Bureau!

The SSH Academy has created this Bureau to help link you with speakers for your conference and other events when you need someone to present about healthcare simulation. You can find our list of Fellows who are part of this network here.

Complete the form with your event information, and we will connect you to your speaker. Bring an FSSH to your conference, advocacy event, or other activity and instantly boost the draw factor!

CHSE-A and CHSOS-A Applications: DEADLINE Sept. 1

For those of you who have already achieved CHSE and/or CHSOS, now is the time to apply for your advanced certification. Why? Well, we are celebrating 10 years of SSH certification! So, of course we want you to be able to celebrate with us at IMSH.

And what better way to celebrate than to show off your new advanced status as either a CHSE-A or a CHSOS-A!

Recorded videos are available on our website. If you are at SimOps, I will be presenting on how to create your portfolio for CHSOS-A and can answer your questions about CHSE-A.

Not yet CHSE or CHSOS? Attend the Virtual Presentation to learn how!

Mark your calendar to learn how to apply to become a CHSE or CHSOS.
