This accreditation program is based on the experience and expertise of the international multidisciplinary and inter-professional community of practice. It takes into account the broad variety of simulation modalities and the context of their usage.

The term Educational Institution (hereafter “Institution”) incorporates all facilities that provide educational sessions and exercise events for healthcare providers from all disciplines and professions.

These can be simulation centers with dedicated space, mobile units that function completely ‘out-of-the box’, mannequin-based facilities or departments relying on standardized patient (SP) methodology.

By seeking accreditation an institution can demonstrate its quality as having been judged and validated by an independent body who is, internationally recognized as, an opinion leader in the domain of simulation-based education in healthcare.

The use of the “Accredited by SESAM” logo is a quality marker which will allow the institution to stand out and further underline its high-quality standards.

The documents available for download below outline the principles and processes of the SESAM accreditation program.
