CDU Simulation Center Awarded Accreditation
The CDU Simulation Center has achieved a significant milestone in its pursuit of excellence in healthcare education as it has been awarded National Provisional Accreditation by the Society for Simulation in Healthcare (SSH).
This prestigious accreditation comes after an 18-month-long journey of rigorous preparation and evaluation, and it places CDU’s Simulation Center on par with only a handful of such centers in Los Angeles, including those at USC, UCLA, and Loma Linda.
“This remarkable achievement is a testament to the commitment and passion we have for delivering high-quality healthcare education through simulation,” said Dr. Lam, CDU Director of Simulation Education. “The National Provisional Accreditation not only boosts our simulation program’s reputation but also instills confidence in our stakeholders and clinical partners, setting the stage for new grant opportunities to further enhance our initiatives.”
The CDU Simulation Center comprises a range of locations and equipment across campus that allow students to learn and immerse themselves in high-fidelity simulation technology utilized by healthcare professionals. This provides an opportunity to practice making potentially life-saving decisions in a safe learning environment while preparing them for real-life experiences in their careers.
The SSH Accreditation Council reviewed CDU’s simulation program and expressed their appreciation for the organization’s efforts in developing a robust and effective simulation program.
