The overarching goal of the Healthcare Simulation in Pediatrics Learning Community is to serve as a resource in simulation for residency and fellowship programs to help advance everyone’s work in simulation, regardless of level of expertise. We aim to promote collaboration, mentorship, and resource sharing related to simulation throughout the APPD community.
- Develop and administer an IRB approved survey to all APPD members about the current state of simulation education for residents to share nationally what is happening with respect to simulation in pediatrics.
- Present two enhanced learning sessions at the APPD Annual Meeting as a learning community to provide an educational and networking opportunity for individuals interested in simulation.
- Develop a mentorship program for people interested in various aspects of simulation to help encourage program advancement and scholarship.
- Create an electronic forum for people to post simulation projects and resources to promote collaboration and knowledge sharing.
We believe that these align well with the APPD Strategic Plan specifically in the areas of mentorship and scholarship. We look forward to serving as a resource to others involved with simulation and are always open to additional ideas on how to best support the APPD community’s simulation needs.
