Welcome to the Chicago Simulation Consortium (CSC)

The Chicago Simulation Consortium (CSC) was established in April 2013 by simulation educators from eight Chicago health professions institutions. We have since expanded to representation from many institutions and organizations in the Chicagoland area. We work with a variety of simulation modalities ranging from standardized patients and high-fidelity mannequins to procedural task trainers and virtual reality. Our mission is:

To support health professions educators who conduct simulation-based educational programs in the Chicago area, by providing professional development programs, developing shared resources, and facilitating collaborative research.

We achieve our mission through a variety of means, including:

  • Annual conference
  • Quarterly meetings which focus on CSC business as well as professional development talks
  • Committees, including those focused on collaborative research and shared resources
  • Membership “socials”
  • Website
  • Listserv

If you are interested in joining the Chicago Simulation Consortium please let us know by filling out the Information Sheet under Register. Once the Information Sheet has been reviewed and approved, you will be able to create a username and password to access the members-only resources.
Please encourage other Chicago-area simulation educators who might be interested in joining or learning more about the Consortium.

Thank you and we look forward to meeting with you.
