The International GTA MUTA Association (IGMA) is thrilled to announce our alliance with Society for Simulation in Healthcare (SSH). IGMA has been officially approved as an affiliate of SSH. The Society for Simulation in Healthcare was established in 2004 by professionals using simulation for education, testing, and research in health care. SSH membership includes physicians, nurses, allied health and paramedical personnel, researchers, educators and developers from around the globe. SSH fosters the improvement and application of simulation–based modalities such as human patient simulators, virtual reality, standardized patients and task trainers. Recognizing that simulation represents a paradigm shift in health care education, SSH promotes improvements in simulation technology, educational methods, practitioner assessment, and patient safety that promote better patient care and can improve patient outcomes.

IGMA is looking forward to the future and our affiliation with SSH. We hope that the work that we will do together will succeed in providing additional educational opportunities for learners and positively impact the methodology that IGMA strives to support; GTA/MUTA education. Working in tandem with other professional organizations that have analogous goals in the forefront of their institutions is critical and improves and supports efforts to create that paradigm shift in medical and healthcare education. Through this partnership, IGMA hopes to continue to provide more comprehensive support for those working in the methodology in order to improve education thereby positively impacting learning in healthcare making healthcare better for future patients. This is an important part of what we do here at IGMA.
