Jarrod Young, MBA, BSE, CHSOS-A, FSSH, operations lead at the Center for Healthcare Improvement and Patient Simulation (CHIPS) at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center, has been accepted into the Society for Simulation in Healthcare (SSH) Academy as a new Fellow. Young is one of 111 people across 13 countries to be awarded this honor.
According to the SSH Academy, the global group of professional health care simulationists was recognized for their sustained contributions and impact in the SSH and the field of health care simulation.
Young was named a Fellow after a rigorous peer-review and evaluation of his summative work, as well as his contributions to SSH and the field of simulation medicine. Young’s experience organizing and overseeing day-to-day operations has helped improve the quality and efficiency of operations at CHIPS, while also providing guidance for simulations specialists and technologists.
Prior to joining CHIPS in 2016, Young was involved in clinical simulation and rehabilitation engineering at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, allowing him to expand the field of simulation medicine and build the framework for his success at UTHSC. His role as a volunteer site reviewer for SSH has expanded the scope of his contribution and contributed to his selection as a Fellow.
SSH is the largest simulation health organization in the world, with 4,700 members across 60 countries.
