SSH

The Society for Simulatoini in Healthcare, aka SSH, is the leading interprofessional association for simulation professionals. SSH is 3,700+ members strong—an international community of physicians, nurses, technologists, professors and other specialists advocating healthcare simulation in education, practice and research.

The purpose of the Society for Simulation in Healthcare is to serve a global community of practice enhancing the quality of healthcare.

ASPE

The Association of Standardized Patient Educators (ASPE) is the international organization of simulation educators dedicated to:

  • Promoting best practices in the application of SP methodology for education, assessment and research
    Fostering the dissemination of research and scholarship in the field of SP methodology
    Advancing the professional knowledge and skills of its members
    Transforming professional performance through the power of human interaction.

NM&SC

The National Modeling & Simulation Coalition NM&SC is a national organization dedicated to the expansion of Modeling & Simulation products, services, tools, processes, and technologies. Throughout this website, you will find information on the Coalition’s activities, past events, current initiatives, our leadership, and our events.

VMASC

The Virginia Modeling, Analysis and Simulation Center (VMASC) is a university-wide multidisciplinary research center that emphasizes modeling, simulation, and visualization (MS&V) research, development and education.

VMASC is one of the world's leading research centers for computer modeling, simulation, and visualization. The mission of the Center is to conduct collaborative MS&V research and development, provide expertise to government agencies and industry, and to promote Old Dominion University, Hampton Roads and Virginia as a center of MS&V activities. Working with more than one hundred industry, government, and academic members, VMASC furthers the development and applications of modeling, simulation and visualization as enterprise decision-making tools to promote economic, business, and academic development. Annually, the Center conducts approximately $10M in funded research.

VMASC concentrates on eight core modeling and simulation applied research areas:

• Transportation
• Homeland Security and Military Defense
• Virtual Environments
• Social Sciences
• Medicine & Health Care
• Game-based Learning
• M&S Interoperability
• System Sciences

MEDBIQUITOUS

Founded by Johns Hopkins Medicine and leading professional medical societies, the MedBiquitous Consortium is the ANSI-accredited developer of information technology standards for healthcare education and quality improvement. Our members are creating a technology blueprint for the health professions. Based on XML and Web services standards, this blueprint will seamlessly support the learner in ways that will improve patient care and simplify the administrative work associated with education and quality improvement. MedBiquitous also provides a neutral forum for educators and industry alike to exchange ideas about innovative uses of Web technologies for health professions education and quality improvement.
