Does Your Simulation Program Meet the Standards? Let the World Know!
For programs that are currently accredited, you will find the information here on this page that is needed to complete your reaccreditation application. The process is essentially identical to the initial application process. Reaccreditation applications and materials are due on June 15 of the year that your current accreditation expires. Review the accreditation standards to get started.
To apply for SSH Reaccreditation:
- Review the SSH Reaccreditation Informational Guide
- Review the SSH Accreditation Self-Study (2016 Standards) (.doc) to determine in which areas you would like to apply for Accreditation
- 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, please begin the online application process here: https://webportalapp.com/sp/fullaccreditation_2019
- ** All FEES associated with SSH Accreditation will be invoiced to your Program following submission and approval of the application.
The 2016 versions of the Accreditation Standards are required as of the December 15, 2016 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.
