In 2019, Tripp Umbach worked closely with leadership from the Georgia Rural Health Innovation Center and the South Georgia Medical Education & Research Consortium to conduct market analysis and coordinate/facilitate a regional planning symposium.

This feasibility study’s goal was to build academic and clinical partnerships across South Georgia and to enhance experiential learning opportunities for learners and providers while serving as a focal point and catalyst for the development, understanding, and advancement of simulation and related technologies throughout the region.

This project aimed to pull together key partners to align resources from various places to create a plan that will build capacity, improve healthcare indicators, and potentially make South Georgia a destination for training and top medical care.
