We have created a consortium of comprehensive and focused accredited education institutes (AEIs) that work together to offers opportunities for members to collaborate; conduct research and have access to resources from fellow AEIs and the ACS in order to effectively train their various learner groups to promote patient safety through simulation.
The work of the Consortium is supported by the 10 volunteer committees highlighted here—all provide resources and education to Consortium Institutes.
Terms are two years and committee members can serve up to two, two-year terms. Additional terms will be approved by the program’s leadership. In addition, broad committee representation by AEIs is encouraged.
The work of the ACS-AEI Consortium is done voluntarily through its committee structure. The primary goal of the Committees is to facilitate the value of being in the Consortium through products and services.
Standing Committees are the working Committees of the Consortium. Currently, the ACS AEI Standing Committees include:
Generally, a Call for Nomination is advertised to the Consortium membership, requesting the names of AEI members along with their CVs for review and approval on a particular Committee. AEI staff will keep files on all of the nominations that come in for consideration. These files will be a reference when a position on a committee opens up. AEI Members are nominated to a Committee through Consortium leadership, by self-nomination or another AEI Member. Committee member selection is in part based on an interest or expertise in the work of the Committee, as well as some familiarity or experience with running or working in an AEI center. Consultants from non-AEIs are brought aboard a committee on an as-needed basis and approved by the Chair of the ACS Program for the Accreditation of Education Institutes/Director, ACS Division of Education. The Consortium leadership has the final approval of all Committee candidates.
For information on becoming involved in a committee contact Amy Johnson, Program Administrator, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 312-202-5415.
