SSH LogoSociety for Simulation in Healthcare (SSH) is the major professional society for simulation in healthcare.  SSH conducts the largest annual international scientific congress on simulation in healthcare – the International Meeting on Simulation in Healthcare (held yearly in January, alternating between the Eastern and Western United States).  Dr. Gaba, the Associate Dean for ISL and Director of CISL, is a founding member of the Board of Directors of SSH.  

 

Simulation in Health Care LogoSimulation in Healthcare: The Journal of the Society for Simulation in Healthcare In January, 2006 the Society for Simulation in Healthcare began publishing the first (and currently the only) indexed peer-reviewed scientific publication devoted to simulation in healthcare. This journal, published by Lippincott Williams and Wilkins for SSH, is titled simply:  Simulation in Healthcare. Dr. Gaba is the founding Editor-in-Chief of the journal, making CISL the home of this new endeavor. Simulation in Healthcare is available online through Lane Library (SUNet ID required).

Simulation in Healthcare is the first and premiere journal dedicated to publishing on the use of simulation for education, training, performance assessment, and research in health care. As such, the core areas of interest for the journal will include (but not necessarily limited to):

Advanced Initiatives in Medical Simulation (AIMS) is a 501c6 trade organization that is heavily involved in educating policy-makers in government and the healthcare industry about the importance of simulation in healthcare for the future of quality and safety in healthcare.  AIMS holds a yearly symposium in Washington D.C. that is combined with an exhibition of simulation activities and products on Capitol Hill. AIMS also drafts model legislation and conducts liaison activities with legislators and policy-makers.
