SESAM accreditation programme offers you the opportunity to demonstrate your institution's quality.

With this programme an institute can be judged and validated by an independent body, internationally recognised 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 your institution to stand out and further underline its high-quality standards.

You can access more detailed information on our web page. In January, the newly formed SESAM Accreditation Group (SAG) met in Frankfurt and some members of the SAG also met again in Orlando, in order to establish a common understanding and internal procedures for the accreditation process. Both meetings were very successful, and the first results of the accreditation process for simulation-based educational institutions will be presented at our 2017 Annual Meeting in Paris.

Adances in Simulation (AIS)

AIS is the official journal of SESAM; it provides a forum to share scholarly practice to advance the use of simulation in the context of health and social care.

Part of SESAM’s mission is to encourage and support the use of simulation in healthcare for the purpose of training and research; we are happy to learn about and publish the results of your research via AIS.

We kindly invite you all to visit the journal's webpage, to read the valuable articles relevant to simulation, as well as submitting your own manuscripts to be reviewed and published.
