Who We Are

The AAEM Simulation Interest Group is founded to foster a global community of practice in simulation–based education, training, and assessment. The purpose of this international community is to educate members on best simulation practices, research, debriefing techniques, and operations. Members will share evidence-based practices, write position papers and expert commentaries on simulations in emergency medicine education and research. Membership is open to all AAEM members interested in simulation.


  • Educate members on relevant latest developments and utilization of the science of simulation-based education in patient care and safety
  • Educate members on evidence-based simulation practice in emergency medicine education and research
  • Create an international sharing platform for collaborative research and academic work
  • Mentor medical students and residents interested in pursuing careers in simulation education and research
