On March 1st, the Institute officially changed its name to the WWAMI Institute for Simulation in Healthcare (WISH).
WISH has recently been approved to begin an ACS accredited fellowship program.
The WWAMI Institute for Simulation in Healthcare (WISH) would like to thank Dr. Paul Ramsey, UW Medicine CEO, for his recent message highlighting WISH in the UW Medicine Online Newsletter on March 20, 2015.
Several faculty and staff members of the Institute for Simulation and Interprofessional Studies attended the annual International Meeting for Simulation in Healthcare (IMSH) from January 10th-15th
