8 Healthcare Simulation Administration Sessions Ready to Watch
A few years back HealthySimulation.com hosted a two-day event called HealthySimAdmin, which covered 8 key topics crucial to the success of managing a simulation program. With a guest panel of administrators ranging from small single sim lab community college nursing programs to massive federal level military simulation centers, each topic was presented on and then discussed by the entire panel. The event was produced in support by UNLV School of Nursing in Las Vegas.Providing countless insights, strategies, tactics and tips, these free to watch sessions have been made available to the HealthySimulation.com online community thanks to the event sponsors Pocket Nurse, B-Line Medical and Laerdal!
Each of the following sessions starts with a 40 minute presentation by the associated key speaker which is then followed by 60 minutes of discussion and Q&A session by the entire expert panel:
- Program Intro: “Riding the Wave of Simulation” – Lance Baily, BA, EMT-B, FireFighter I, Healthcare Simulation Entrepreneur
- Session A: “Collaborative Simulation Program Development” – Carolyn Yucha, RN, PhD, FAAN (Total Run Time: 1H:38M)
- Session B: “Funding Sources & Models” – Carolyn Yucha, RN, PhD, FAAN & COL (Ret) John McManus, MD, MCR (Total Run Time: 1H:45M)
- Session C: “Clinical Educator Training & Buy-in” – Jane Kleinman RN, MAOM (Total Run Time: 1H:55M)
- Session D: “Research Development” – Amar Pravin Patel, MS, NREMT-P, CFC (Total Run Time: 1H:36M)
- Session E: “Daily Operations” – Henry Henao MSN, ARNP, FNP-BC, EMT (Total Run Time: 1H:58M)
- Session F: “IT Structures & Issues” – James Cypert BAP, BAIT, MCSE, MCT, MCP (Total Run Time: 1H:50M)
- Session G: “Increasing Utilization” – Allen J. Giannakopoulos, Ph.D. (Total Run Time: 1H:50M)
- Session H: “Business Development & Revenue Generation” – Lance Baily, HealthySimAdmin Organizer, (Total Run Time: 1H:56M)
Reasons to Watch HealthySimAdmin:
Expand your knowledge by learning from a diverse group of sim adminsThe HealthySimAdmin panel of experts is comprised of successful simulation program administrators from a variety of settings including: community, state and university nursing schools, medical schools, EMS programs, hospitals, IT departments, and the military. Additional panel members will include leading industry consultants who have designed and managed sim labs around the globe. HealthySimAdmin will not only share “proven-to-work” techniques from others in your field but also provide an expanded perspective from others that utilize medical simulation within healthcare.
Learn from your new professional community
Currently there are no professional degrees in medical simulation program management. Simulation program administrators have varied experience which may include successful or maybe, not so successful, strategies for managing a simulation center/lab. For example, a sim lab program manager with an IT background will have little trouble integrating their center’s network technology, but may find clinical educator training and buy-in much more challenging. In that sense, our growing international community is the best resource we have for learning and sharing the best practices in each of the numerous facets necessary to operate a simulation lab. HealthySimAdmin’s mission is to create a global and shared community online space where healthcare simulation program administrators can find and share information unique to medical simulation management.
Participate from anywhere in the world
What happened in Vegas did not stay in Vegas with HealthySimAdmin! With any high-speed internet connection you will be able to watch HealthySimAdmin wherever you are. Join an international audience of healthcare simulation managers who have already watched HealthySimAdmin and gain global insight into the operations and development of a successful medical simulation program.
Maximize your time with medical simulation admin specific content
While the methodology of simulation in healthcare continues to expand exponentially across the globe, the discussions regarding the operations and management of this technology are relatively new. And while other medical simulation-based meetings do exist, they primarily serve our community’s clinical educators. Thus, resources and guidance for program administrators remains limited. To address this challenge, HealthySimAdmin held an event specifically designed to meet the needs of healthcare simulation program administrators. Catch up to the hundreds of other administrators who have already watched HealthySimAdmin and maximize your time and resources by engaging with content that is as unique as your profession!

Start With Session 1: “Collaborative Simulation Program Development”
Imagine splitting the cost of a brand new simulation center and operational program in thirds, while simultaneously increasing access to equipment, space and staff support. Now also consider the benefits of partnering with other healthcare professional disciplines to further breakdown the traditional educational training silos through your simulation program. Dean Carolyn Yucha RN, PhD, FAAN from UNLV’s Nursing and Allied Health Programs will launch our discussion into how to develop a multi-disciplinary multi-institutional collaborative simulation center. Dean Yucha spent three years leading the development of the Clinical Simulation Center of Las Vegas, which supports the clinical education of three distinct institutions across a multitude of disciplines.
Following Dean Yucha’s presentation, the HealthySimAdmin panel of experts will continue the discussion of related topics such as stakeholder identification and board/committee needs, types of umbrella administrative structures, architectural design considerations, financial reimbursement systems, building and program support services, legal requirements, ongoing collaborative issues and more. Funding models will be touched upon briefly but will be explored in greater depth during subsequent sessions. Audience question and answer sessions will follow the lecture and panel discussion. In summary, in this session we will learn how to build and continue a successful collaborative partnership for a medical simulation program.
