4 SimLEARN Background In July, 2009, the VA Under Secretary for Health approved the establishment of the Simulation Learning Education and Research Network (SimLEARN). SimLEARN is a national simulation training, education and research program which will develop the strategic vision and system-wide plan for simulation process modeling, training, education and research for VHA. National program includes the establishment of a National Center

To promote excellence in health care provided to America's Veterans through the use of simulation technologies for process modeling, training, education, and research and to establish VHA as the world leader in the application of simulation based strategies.
