IMSH: International Meeting for Simulation In Healthcare

IMSH, aka, the International Meeting for Simulation in Healthcare,‌ is hosted every year by the Society for Simulation in Healthcare (SSH) in a major city of the United States. Dedicated to healthcare simulation research and learning, the event provides an opportunity for “Simulation Champions” from around the world to come together to network with peers, learn from experts, and see the latest medical simulators like those from Laerdal Medical, Elevate Healthcare, SimX, Medical Shipment, or Education Management Solutions.

The Society for Simulation in Healthcare (SSH) hosts this event and offers over 250 sessions encompassing interactive and immersive courses and plenary sessions. The IMSH meeting is aligned with the SSH’s mission to “provide hands-on learning in leading-edge medical simulation trends and technology, networking and collaboration.” Furthermore, the programs are all peer-reviewed and are selected to serve the needs of novices to experts.

“Overall, SSH has members from 70 countries. Every year for IMSH, there are professionals from more than 60 countries attend IMSH,” Trenell Crosky, Director of Continuing Education, SSH, said. Without question, IMSH has become the hallmark healthcare simulation education event. No other event in the world can match the incredible number of high-level sessions, learning labs, immersive courses, mainstage presentations, and other learning settings that drive IMSH. At IMSH 2025, in addition to the unmatched education offerings, attendees will be able to level up their simulation game through networking with rockstar instructors, getting a big peek at the future of simulation tech, and scoring fresh ideas to take back to their programs.”

Trenell continues, “With the Looking Back, Reaching Forward central theme to IMSH 2025 conference, this is the perfect mix of acknowledging our industry’s initial contributions and wisdom while using this event as an inspiring reach accelerator.”



At IMSH meetings, key areas of discussion are often new ideas, leadership development, new processes and research findings, innovative approaches, design strategies, return on investment and improved communication techniques. As a catalyst for advancement and evolution in healthcare simulation technology, the IMSH brings together and connects industry professionals to learn. The event is considered to be one of the top educational and networking events for the healthcare simulation world, especially for those with interests in IPE.

Ultimately, when deciding on which topics to discuss at each meeting, the IMSH Planning Committee dedicates their time and expertise to creating a leading edge and memorable experience for attendees. In planning for the event, the committee seeks to ensure that some components differ from year to year. This means introducing new cutting-edge themes that set the framework for all content offerings, inviting dynamic keynote speakers and ensuring that presentations contain innovative learning formats (such as immersive courses, rapid-fire sessions, roundtable discussions, debates, panel discussions and in-depth and hands-on workshops).

Additionally, each year IMSH introduces new social events and networking opportunities, research initiatives (in-progress and complete), technology and the SimVentors Technology Showcase (featuring the brightest ideas in healthcare simulation). 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 Interprofessional Continuing Education (IPCE) for Virtual IMSH attendees and earn IPCE credits for learning.

Registration for the next IMSH event always opens in the Fall, and individuals interested in joining the IMSH email list can register online.

Other vendors in attendance will include Avkin, HealthStream, HTC Vive, Nasco, Oxford Medical Simulation (OMS), PCS, SimVS, SKILLQUBE, TacMed Solutions, and more! Watch the Massive Upload of Must-See IMSH 2024 Exhibitor Demo Videos!
