The goal of the Affiliations Committee is to form partnerships with other organizations, societies and special interest groups to support and enhance pediatric and perinatal simulation internationally.

Current Affiliates

In addition to forming Affiliations, IPSS also serves as a patron organization for new simulation organizations providing early mentorship for future success.

We're 67‚Äč,000 pediatricians committed to the optimal physical, mental, and social health and well-being for all infants, children, adolescents, and young adults.

The Association for Simulated Practice in Healthcare (ASPiH) is a not-for-profit membership Association dedicated to improving patient care and professional performance by the use of simulated practice and technology enhanced learning.

The primary aim of the INSPIRE network is to conduct innovative, high-quality, impactful research to improve the delivery of life-saving care and clinical outcomes in critically ill infants and children.

SESAM (Society for Simulation in Europe) is a multiprofessional network of simulation enthusiasts in Europe dedication to promoting simulation in medical education

The Society for Simulation in Healthcare (SSH) represents the rapidly growing group of educators and researchers who utilize a variety of simulation techniques for education, testing, and research in healthcare. We are a broad-based, multi-disciplinary, multi-specialty, international society with ties to all medical specialties, nursing, allied health paramedical personnel, and industry.

SimGHOSTS, aka The Gathering Of Healthcare Simulation Technology Specialists, is an international US-based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to supporting individuals and institutions operating medical simulation technology and spaces through: hands-on training events, online resources, and professional development.

WFPICCS exists to disseminate and make available the high standards of Pediatric Intensive & Critical Care to all children of the world.

The network pediatric simulation was launched in 2014 to connect individuals and centers in German-speaking countries involved in pediatric simulation – whether on a small or large scale.

MEPA aims to give all anaesthetic trainees the opportunity to develop management strategies for emergencies in paediatric anaesthesia through the use of high fidelity simulation. We are a collaboration of specialist paediatric anaesthetists from across the globe with an interest in simulation-based training. The MEPA course is a series of literature-based expert peer-reviewed scenarios followed by presentations.

Mobile Pediatric Simulation (MPS) is sharing in the promotion of the child health worldwide, improving the quality of practice and enhancing the patient safety through simulation-based education. They aim to demonstrate, implement and disseminate unique high quality pediatric simulation experience everywhere in the globe. MPS continuously improve themselves not only in pediatrics and simulation but also in other disciplines like arts and sciences.

PCICS promotes excellence in pediatric cardiac critical care medicine.

HFES provides education, builds connections, and advocates on behalf of human factors/ergonomics field—from students to researchers, and industry practitioners—and fosters collaboration across the spectrum of professionals to drive forward advances in human factors and ergonomics because HFES believes that the seamless connection between humans and systems, and the connection between research and application, is vital to keeping all human beings safe.
