SIG purpose/mission:
The mission of the APA SBME SIG is to provide a forum to foster simulation-based education, collaboration, and research in pediatrics. 

Current SIG goals:
To foster education and collaboration in medical simulation 
To provide networking opportunities amongst our members 
To provide personal and professional growth amongst our members with regard to various opportunities

Annual summary:
We had a successful SBME SIG meeting at PAS.  We had nationally recognized speakers discuss "Disaster Preparedness" as it relates to simulation and education.  We had wonderful attendance and interest.  In advance of the meeting, we had polled our members with regard to their interests and applicable topics.  We look forward to continuing to reach out to our members to help make our meetings meaningful and helpful to our membership.
