DEI Committee

The SSH Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee supports the strategic goals of the Society as they pertain to diversity, equity, and inclusion. The Committee’s focus and work ensures that voices are both represented and heard at every level of SSH - from the Board level and outward through committees, sections, research summits, and the greater simulation community.

The SSH Simulation Code of Ethics specifically references the aspirational value of "Mutual Respect — Exhibit humane behavior, honor diversity, and foster inclusion, avoiding prejudicial treatment.” This Committee is a natural progression and working mechanism of that commitment to the Code.

The Committee is currently searching for two members to join the nine-person group. Requirements include regular attendance of monthly virtual committee calls and a full commitment to helping SSH achieve its DEI goals. To apply, please see above.


Healthcare Simulation Week 2024 Planning Team

Each year, the Healthcare Simulation Week planning team – consisting of three individuals – works with SSH Staff to strategically plan Healthcare Simulation Week, which is held each September the week following September 11. Once planning is complete, the Planning Team then works with and supports SSH Staff with the plan’s execution.

Requirements include regular attendance on bi-weekly calls that begin in March and run through September. Additional calls may be scheduled on an as needed basis. Planning Team members must be current SSH members.
