About HealthySimulation.com Founder Lance Baily
From 2011 until 2018 Lance also founded and was the Executive Director of SimGHOSTS, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that produces healthcare simulation technology specialist conferences demanded all over the world, with previous events at prominent facilities which include Cedars-Sinai Los Angeles, SingHealth Singapore, Mohammad Bin Rashid Medical Center Dubai, GAPS London, Clinical Skills Development Service Brisbane, and Centre Universitaire des Saints-Pères Paris to name a few. He remains today a dedicated Board member as Chairman of the Board.
Lance began both of these now international communities while serving as the first Director of the 31,000 square feet multi-institutional multi-disciplinary Clinical Simulation Center of Las Vegas (CSCLV) from 2009 to 2012. This new program was funded by the Nevada System of Higher Education to unite clinical education and training programs from the University of Nevada: Las Vegas School of Nursing, Nevada State College School of Nursing, and University of Nevada: School of Medicine.
Prior to this Lance served as a Sim Tech for LA Harbor College while becoming a CA Certified Firefighter –all of which somehow took place after he spent four years working in Hollywood’s A-List Production companies and his Bachelors in Film & Digital Media Production from UC: Santa Cruz.
Lance acted as Marketing and Strategy Consultant for SimCharacters for the international launch of their new preterm simulator Paul, at IMSH 2017.
