Nominations open for annual Under Secretary for Health's Excellence Awards

By Gerald Sonnenberg

ORLANDO, Fla. – The VHA SimLEARN program announced a call for nominations for the Under Secretary for Health’s Awards Program for Excellence in Clinical Simulation Training, Education and Research. This awards program recognizes clinical and executive leaders in VHA’s clinical simulation community who have supported and advanced VHA’s strategic plan for clinical simulation.

The annual awards program was established to promote and advance system-wide progress of VHA goals, objectives and strategies for the deployment of clinical simulation to improve the quality of health care for Veterans.

The award categories still include the Excellence in Clinical Simulation Training, Education and Research Practice Award and the Excellence in Clinical Simulation Training, Education and Research Executive Leadership Award. However, the awards recently expanded, per VHA Directive 1133, to include two more categories: the Excellence in Clinical Simulation Training, Education and Research Champion Award and the Excellence in Clinical Simulation Training, Education and Research Champion Award for the Resuscitation Education Initiative (REdI).

Please visit the Simulation Awards page on the SimLEARN website to view award criteria and how to submit the nominations. Each award requires its own specific nomination form, as well as a Form VA0235 for submission.

Nomination acceptance has been extended to Jan. 8, 2016.
