AAEM Simulation Interest Group

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.
