Bob Waters Memorial Scholarship (AIMS)

Bob Waters was a gentleman of vision, an energetic voice for what he called "the right thing to do," and a good friend to the members of SSH.

Bob became an advocate for simulation after seeing a demonstration of simulators at the 2006 American Telemedicine Association meeting. When he was told that no one had any experience going into the offices on Capitol Hill, his eyes sparkled. "That's where I can help – I'm a lobbyist."

Bob Water’s life was cut short by a brain tumor that claimed him at the peak of his career at age 55. To honor his memory, the Advanced Initiative in Medical Simulation (AIMS) Board and SSH established the Bob Waters Memorial Scholarship Fund to support students in healthcare simulation. To be eligible for this scholarship, applicants must be either a full or part-time student, resident or fellow.

The scholarship includes:
• Full registration for IMSH 2020
• One year of SSH Student membership
• Up to $1,500 travel stipend reimbursed
