INACSL List Serve:
INACSL has a list-serve email system for members. The platform is a little out of date but you will receive some quality information from the daily digest of emails.
The society in Europe for Simulation Applied to Medicine hosts a page with all of their relevant newsletters.
If you are a member of the Society for Simulation in Healthcare (SSIH) you will occasionally get emails regarding key information from the Society. But, you can always check out the latest news at their online newsletter.
While vendor newsletters mostly highlight current and new products, they can also provide some very useful insights about successful simulation programs. Keeping in the loop with the latest in product information and industry trends is always worth the extra monthly email.
