WISH Program Application Process

WISH PROCESS:

The WWAMI Institute for Simulation in Healthcare (WISH) has developed a formal intake and grant process for all WISH education/training programs. Beginning in 2017, all new programs are required to complete a program application in order to be considered for WISH resourcing (space, technical support, simulation equipment, etc.). Applications for WISH resources, will be accepted on a rolling basis with a bi-annual award cycle*. All accepted programs will henceforth be reviewed annually for compliance.

  • Applications will be reviewed by the WISH Application Review Committee, which will include clinical content, education, and simulation technology representatives.

ELIGIBILITY:

Only UW Medicine entities are eligible to submit grant proposals to utilize WISH resources.

APPLICATION:

Completed applications are accepted on a rolling-basis with a bi-annual review deadline (see calendar below). Completed applications must be submitted by the bi-annual due date in order to be considered in that round of review.

Accepted applicants will be notified and approved for scheduling via WISH-HMC and WISH-UWMC processes.

Recurrences of existing programs (defined as courses that have been held/scheduled in WISH to-date) will not be formally reviewed in the 2017 pilot season of applications, but will need to submit a completed application portfolio by 10/1/17, in order to be considered for 2018-2019 academic year resourcing.

REVIEW CRITERIA:

All applications will be reviewed and prioritized based on alignment with UW Medicine strategic safety priorities. Priority will be given to courses demonstrating educational need, multi-disciplinary/interprofessional collaboration opportunities.
