This year, our annual Simulation Days Celebration looked quite different. Instead of our normal walk-through tours, speaker, and dinner, we held a virtual celebration to widen our reach and still celebrate simulation education while prioritizing safety.

On Sept. 16, we started off our Sim Days with a presentation by the CSP staff on current operations and highlighted some simulations that have occurred in the last year.

On Sept. 17, the CSP Team recognized six individuals for their outstanding partnerships with the SIM Center:

  • The Up and Coming Simulationist award went to Jennifer Quinn for her work with Emergency Services Med Flight simulations.
  • Coordinator of the Year went to Sarah Fallon for her coordination of all Emergency Medicine resident simulations.
  • The Collaborators of the Year award went to Laurel Mitmoen and Margaret Murray for their joint effort in creating and launching the Nurse Code Responder Initiative and testing it using simulation.
  • The CSP Recognition of Appreciation award went to Michele Glynn for all the amazing work and help she provided during the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Simulationist of the Year was awarded to Dr. Adam Bauer for his work with pediatric resident and medical student simulations.

Congratulations again to our awardees! We hope to be able to celebrate in-person next year.
