Friday, March 29, 2013
Daniel G. Miller, MD, Clinical Assistant Professor and Director of
Medical Simulation in the Department of Emergency Medicine was named one
of the world’s first Certified Healthcare Simulation Educators (CHSE)
by the Society for Simulation in Healthcare (SSH) after successful
completion of the pilot certification process.
The SSH was established to support educators and researchers who
utilize a variety of simulation techniques including a wide array of
technical tools, situation settings and role play techniques. The SSH
developed the CHSE Certification as a formal professional recognition of
specialized knowledge, skills, abilities and accomplishments in
simulation. Healthcare simulations are used by medical professionals to
educate, assess, research and integrate health systems which serves to
improve the safety, effectiveness and efficiency of healthcare services.
The CHSE launched in June, 2012 with over 270 applications received
to complete the pilot. Since the pilots completion CHSE is now open to
all application who meet the eligibility criteria.
