The SSH Academy recognizes individuals whose sustained contributions have had an impact on the field of healthcare simulation.
The Fellows were selected based on their outstanding and sustained contributions to the development of SSH and to the field of healthcare simulation. The Academy convenes a cadre of experts, vetted by their peers, who initiate important work to move the field forward.
Selection is based on evidence of sustained contribution and impact on both the field of healthcare simulation and the Society as well as a commitment to support the mission and vision of the Academy.
In addition to Dr. Lampotang, ten other individuals were selected to the 2019 class. They join the existing group of forty-nine Fellows who have been selected in the last two years.
