Does Your Simulation Program Meet the Standards? Let the World Know!
Programs that are currently accredited will receive a survey from the Director of Accreditation in January of the year in which their accreditation is set to expire. Completing and submitting the survey will help the SSH Accreditation Council determine whether a Program is eligible for a virtual review, or if an onsite visit is necessary. For any questions related to the survey, contact Kristyn Gadlage. The process of applying for reaccreditation is completed through our online application submission portal and the application is due on July 15th of the year in which your Program’s accreditation is set to expire. We strongly encourage all reaccreditation applicants to review the SSH Accreditation Standards as well as the corresponding Companion Documents prior to starting the application process.
To apply for SSH Reaccreditation:
- Review the SSH Accreditation Informational Guide
- Review the SSH Accreditation Standards (2021) to determine the areas in which your program meets the criteria.
- Explore the Companion Documents (above) for each area. These will help you know what is desired for each standard.
- Before you apply, begin collecting responses for each of the SSH Accreditation Standards for which you plan on applying. When you have the information gathered, you will need to apply through our online portal.
- ** All FEES associated with SSH Accreditation will be invoiced to your Program following submission and approval of the application.
The 2021 versions of the Accreditation Standards are required as of the July 15, 2022 application submission date. There remain the five areas for accreditation. All must apply for Core, the remaining areas are optional (must apply for at least one of Assessment, Research, or Teaching/Education). All standards and evidence within each area that a Program applies to become accredited are required. If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. It is strongly recommended that the companion documents be downloaded and reviewed first, they include the standards and criteria. There are often questions about what is meant by each item in the Accreditation Standards. The Accreditation Committee has put together the following companion documents to help applicant programs understand the intent and concept of the Standards in each area. These are not prescriptive, and are intended to help the applicant programs to gain insight into how their own program demonstrates the standards, and what documentation might be needed to support the standard.
