SSH Accreditation is GROWING! > The Society for Simulation in Healthcare

We are officially into our second month of 2021 and some exciting progress is being made! Around the globe, vaccines are being distributed and giving us hope that we’ll soon be able to overcome Covid-19 and gather with you in-person again.

Thanks to IMSH Delivers!, though, you don’t have to be separated from the multitude of resources our annual meeting has to offer, including some upcoming events being brought to you by SSH Accreditation.

On Tuesday, February 16th, we shared some of the remarkable things SSH Accredited Programs are doing to enhance their Simulation Programs during the event SSH Accreditation Presents: Exemplary Practices of Accredited Programs. This is a great opportunity to learn how leaders in the industry are driving their Simulation Programs forward, and how you may be able to put their practices in place at your own institution.
