Belmont University’s health sciences simulation program has received accreditation in the teaching/education sectors from the Society for Simulation in Healthcare (SSIH) and the Council for Accreditation of Healthcare Simulation Programs.

The status is for a five-year period and is valid through December 2022, according to a release.

Belmont’s simulation program, the first in the state to receive such accreditation, aims to improve patient safety and health outcomes by providing evidence-based, experiential education.

Additionally, the program’s material recycling program was acknowledged as one of Belmont’s best practices. The program saves the university more than $40,000 per year, the university notes.

Dr. Beth Hallmark, director of the program, stressed the importance of the program.

“Simulation is a safe place to participate in patient care,” Hallmark said. “It enhances patient safety and improves patient outcomes by increasing confidence and improving clinical reasoning. We also are able to expose our students to interprofessional training.”
