Society for Simulation in Healthcare Elections, Accreditation Webinar, and IMSH Registration Open
1) Elections are currently taking place until November 6, 2013, 11:59PM CDT. Positions up for election include: President, Treasurer and Director-At-Large. “Each candidate has submitted a CV, statement of interest in the position and disclosure of interest information to help you make an informed decision. Go here to review each candidate and vote!
Personal note: Allen J. Giannakopoulos, Ph.D. is the only one running for Treasurer. I can attest to his excellent knowledge of financials in simulation – as he was one of our key speakers at last year’s recorded event HealthySimAdmin!
2) A free Accreditation webinar series is being offered designed to provide information on the SSH accreditation standards, application process, and in-depth focused area review. Register today! The next Webinar is next week: October 15, 2013 | 2:00 pm ET.
Reminder, the next SSH “International Meeting for Simulation in Healthcare” takes place Jan. 25th – 29th in San Francisco! Registration is now open!
