One Week Left! Early-Bird Registrations to SimGHOSTS Simulation Technology Training Events in AUS, UK, USA End Soon!
Did you know you now only have one week left to secure early-bird registrations to SimGHOSTS 2016 Summer events in Australia, United Kingdom, and United States? The time to secure huge savings on the world’s leading simulation technology training events is now!
“Everyone involved in operating simulation needs to be at SimGHOSTS.”
Amy Wise, Health Sciences Sim Coordinator, North Central Texas College
Why an Event Specific to Those Operating Healthcare Simulation Technology?
Medical Simulation is an emerging professional field which currently has little to no formalized educational pathways for entrance. Thus, everyone who starts or continues a career into medical simulation has sidestepped from another field or industry. This means that members of this community bring with them a wealth of specialized knowledge that others will not have. The SimGHOSTS meeting is the primary way for this new professional community to come together and share these best practices gained from years of experience in other fields, will enable all Sim Techs to walk away with a greater ability to perform the many responsibilities of their professional duties.
SimGHOSTS Advantages Over Other Simulation Events
Hands-on & Specific Content: Between wound creation in our moulage courses, to advanced networking workshops, to intense workgroup sessions… SimGHOSTS is all about the doing. Unlike other events that cater to clinical educators and focus on faculty integration, debriefing or other nontechnical courses, Sim Techs come to SimGHOSTS to focus on issues relevant to their position. Attendees return home with valuable skills and knowledge of new techniques that can enhance realism in scenarios, increase reliability and flexibility of a simulation center’s systems, and more.
Affordable registration: The SimGHOSTS board works hard to partner with the right host institutions, hotels and vendor sponsors to make sure the event is the best value for investments made into technical staff. Unlike other events that provide Technology courses as an afterthought, SimGHOSTS exists specifically for the purpose of providing resources to the technical user first and foremost. This is the only meeting solely built, operated and lead by Sim Techs. Other simulation technical events don’t come close to the day for day cost or value gained at SimGHOSTS which is jampacked with diverse and innovative content. Plus, we work overtime with hotel partners to offer quality accommodations sometimes HALF the cost of other simulation events.
Personal connections: Simulation technical staff are often working alone and unable to “talk shop” to learn better ways to do their job. SimGHOSTS events give attendees the chance to be surrounded by their peer community and share best practices. Attendees return home with new ideas and new resources from national and international colleagues working in simulation centers at universities, hospitals, fire departments and more!
