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.
