William Beaumont Army Medical Center's (WBAMC) Central Simulation Committee Medical Simulation Center received provisional accreditation from the Society for Simulation in Healthcare (SSH) in Teaching/Education.

The WBAMC Simulation Center exposes healthcare professionals to lifelike medical scenarios aimed at developing and shaping teamwork, communication and critical thinking skills and give them the opportunity to improve their competence and patient safety.

"(Full accreditation means) we'll have an opportunity to bring different funding and programs into the organization and have broader opportunities," said Lt. Col. Olga Betancourt, deputy chief, Education Division, WBAMC. "In turn, these increased opportunities will affect patient care because residents will be able to practice more and conduct different research improving Army Medicine."
