The International Meeting on Simulation in Healthcare (IMSH) is a scientific conference that explores the latest innovations and best practices in healthcare simulation. IMSH provides the tools and resources healthcare professionals need to advance their skills, impact change in delivery systems and practice, and, ultimately, to improve patient safety. Those interested in attending will find big discounts by registering before November 8th — so hurry as time is almost out to secure early-bird rates.
Healthcare simulation professionals are change agents. They know that change is inevitable and guaranteed. Join your colleagues from all levels of expertise and from around the world to help POWER the future in healthcare through simulation. Experience first-hand how healthcare simulation professionals will lead the way in Redefining and Redesigning the future by attending IMSH 2019 in San Antonio!
In support of improving patient care, the Society for Simulation in Healthcare is jointly accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), to provide continuing education for the healthcare team. This activity was planned by and for the healthcare team, and learners will receive a maximum of 44.5 Interprofessional Continuing Education (IPCE) credits for learning and change.

The purpose of the Society for Simulation in Healthcare is to serve a global community of practice enhancing the quality of healthcare. SSH seeks to improve performance and reduce errors in patient care through the use of simulation. Established in 2004 by professionals using simulation for education, testing, and research in health care, SSH membership includes physicians, nurses, allied health and paramedical personnel, researchers, educators and developers from around the globe. SSH fosters the improvement and application of simulation–based modalities such as human patient simulators, virtual reality, standardized patients and task trainers.
Recognizing that simulation represents a paradigm shift in health care education, SSH promotes improvements in simulation technology, educational methods, practitioner assessment, and patient safety that promote better patient care and can improve patient outcome. A major venue for advancing simulation in medicine is the International Meeting for Simulation in Healthcare (IMSH).
A precursor to IMSH was the first Society for Technology in Anesthesia (STA) meeting with simulation as the focus in 1998. In January 2001, the First International Meeting for Medical Simulation (IMMS) was held. This became the International Meeting for Simulation in Healthcare with an official name change in 2007 to reflect the diversity of SSH.
