Many Helpful Sim Tech Operation Articles from SimGHOSTS as Early-Bird Event Deadlines Approach

SimGHOSTS,  aka The Gathering of Healthcare Simulation Technology Specialists, is the World’s only non-profit organization dedicated specifically to those operating medical simulation technologies. Since 2011 the SimGHOSTS board of directors have partnered with over a dozen simulation centers around the world to provide hands-on conference workshops in all things “Sim Tech“. This year is no different with the 4th annual Australia event at the University of the Sunshine Coast this late June and the 8th annual USA taking place at the brand new Health Science Center at the University of Tennessee in Memphis this early August! Secure your early-bird registration now and while you wait, check out these helpful blog articles below from the team to help better your healthcare simulation program today! Did you know subscription is only $60 a year? Thats less than a cup of coffee!

Who Should Attend SimGHOSTS Events?

Anyone responsible for the technical operation of a medical simulation lab including full-time or part-time Sim Techs, or clinical educators tasked with operating the day-to-day of simulation spaces. As well, anyone evaluating medical-simulation based technology should strongly consider attending as most major industry vendors are encouraged to attend.

Other meetings are better suited for clinical educators specifically looking to learn how to teach with medical simulation, except for the 2018 Australia event which will also provide content for the categories of Debriefing, Simulation Education & Research Methodology, Serious Games, VR & AR.

Administrators of simulation programs should also consider sending their institution’s AV and IT related staff members who are responsible for supporting the simulation program. In our most recent events, staff from AV and IT departments outside of the healthcare simulation program found immense benefit from participating in SimGHOSTS to better understand the needs of their institution’s simulation program!
