“The biggest reward for me in presenting was being challenged by experts in the field on my approach to simulation and education, and having the opportunity to discuss topics in-depth after the presentation. It was easily as much a learning experience for me as it was for anyone who came to my presentation.” -David Halloway, Senior Clinical Adviser, University of Wollongong
SimGHOSTS Event Director Ryan Eling is happy to announce that the inaugural SimGHOSTS-ASPiH UK Conference will take place at the Leeds-Beckett University Clinical Skills Suite and the NHS Horizon Leeds facility in Leeds, UK July 27 – 29, 2015! These two facilities offer wonderful spaces for collaboration, hands-on activities and exciting vendor exhibitions!
