Free Medical Simulation Resource Website Turns 6!


Simulation Champions! Thank you for all your continued readership and support as we celebrate our 6th year providing free medical simulation resources around the world. Did you know that since 2010 over 300,000 readers have viewed our thousand plus articles almost 800,000 times? You have come from 214 different countries to learn and share more about healthcare simulation:

6 Years ago today begin with our first article:

“Welcome to, an independent resource site for healthcare educators and professionals to share and grow our field of medical simulation.

Healthcare Simulation is such an emergent field that no one person, place, or resource has all the answers to the thousands of questions and problems unique to the developing technology.  While at this time the best way to learn about simulation is to visit a sim lab or sim center, the potential of the internet to share and exchange ideas from all over the world clearly provides an opportunity to grow healthy simulation faster and with greater ease than ever before.

The goal of this website is to provide unfiltered resources and honest advice for those developing and growing a simulation program.  By connecting the millions of new and developing simulation users with the thousands of “simulation champions”, those who not only get simulation but truly love it!”

Do you think we are hitting that goal? With now over 3,500 email newsletter subscribers, I think we are!

Dear HealthySim Readers!

We have noticed that the website has been under performing in the past few weeks and believe it is time to give a “face lift” with a new theme and functionality. Thus we are seeking support from our community for individuals with previous experience in server host migration, redesigning a wordpress website, twitter integration, and SEO automation.

Please contact us at if you would like to volunteer your support to give an update!
