WISH Program Application 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.


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


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.


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.


Applications are accepted year-round, however cutoffs for bi-annual award review are as follows:

  • 5/1/2017 (Round 1)
  • 10/1/2017 (Round 2)

Application portfolios for existing programs are due no later than:
