Centra’s Central Virginia Center of Simulation and Virtual Learning (also known as the Virtual Learning Center) was awarded full accreditation through the Society for Simulation in Healthcare (SSH) on April 15, 2019.

SSH Accreditation is a peer-reviewed evaluation of the healthcare simulation program. This accreditation examined the program's processes and outcomes in teaching and education.

The Standards of Performance assess the program’s ability to achieve desired outcomes by using best practices.

The Centra team has been working over a year to prepare documents that show evidence of the quality programs and best practice principles.

This distinction makes the Virtual Learning Center the fifth simulation program in Virginia to receive this title.
