Sim Tech Training Event Coming to Australia in 2014
SimGHOSTS, which stands for The Gathering of Healthcare Simulation Technology Specialists, is expanding its annual hands-on training meeting for Sim Techs by launching a second event in Australia next year! While the non-profit organization is still selecting a USA-host for next year’s ongoing meeting, today they announced a 2nd meeting to take place at the University of the Sunshine Coast in the Queensland region of Australia.
As the founder of this non-profit organization I have been thrilled to create support almost 1,000 simulation technology specialist champions over the past three years. Witnessing the continued presence of Sim Techs from Australia at the SimGHOSTS event, I knew we had to start to connect the growing international community of simulation technology specialists by providing the same desperately needed support to champions “down under”.
This event will be an opportunity for simulation professionals to come and learn from simulation technology leaders and leading industry vendors. There will be hands-on workshops, pre-conference courses and podium presentations covering a variety of topics, including: Moulage, Audiovisual technology, Simulator programming, Hardware maintenance and configuration, Information technology, Basic medical training and much more.
