SIMPL's mission is to "Establish and maintain the operational, collaborative, data, and analytic infrastructure to support continuous improvement of the medical education system". Our initial goal has been to provide educators and learners with convenient, reliable, valid assessment tools that can be used for frequent, real-time workplace assessment and feedback. The SIMPL OR app provides this platform. Through collaboration by members in 13 specialties, we work to improve the quality of education across medical education.
