Fellowship Corner: Veterans Health Administration Welcomes New Simulation Fellows
By: VHA SimLEARN Staff
Five Veterans Health Administration (VHA) medical centers welcomed seven first year Fellows and two second year Fellows to the VA Interprofessional Advanced Fellowship in Clinical Simulation this past quarter. According to the Office of Academic Affiliations (OAA), “the purpose of the Fellowship is to develop leaders with vision, knowledge, and commitment to implement, teach, evaluate, and advance simulation-based strategies to improve healthcare for Veterans and the Nation” (OAA, 2020)*.
The VHA medical centers are in Durham, Minneapolis, Pittsburgh, San Francisco, and Tampa. The Simulation Learning, Evaluation, Assessment, and Research Network, or SimLEARN, functions as the Fellowship’s Coordinating Center and is in Orlando, Florida.
