IMSH 2023

Every year the Society for Simulation in Healthcare (SSiH), hosts the International Meeting for Simulation in Healthcare (IMSH) in a major city in 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 simulation innovations. In 2023, IMSH will take place from January 21 to January 25, 2023 in-person in Orlando, Florida, and again with a virtual IMSH Delivers option.

IMSH will offer hundreds of industry-leading presentations, cementing the event’s place as the world’s premier healthcare simulation education learning event. Those interested in attending do not have to be a member of IMSH to attend. Benefits of attending include session content, multi-disciplinary education, vendor contacts, and hands-on workshops. Plus, this year’s two-day event will feature groundbreaking research regarding guidelines in healthcare simulation.

“Our society and profession are stronger than ever due to the hard work and dedication of our members and simulationists across the globe. They were instrumental in ensuring our front-line healthcare workers and future workforce were safe, prepared, and trained,” shared Haru Okuda, MD, FACEP SSH President. “I predict that IMSH 2023, in Orlando, will be the best-attended meeting in the history of the society with our industry partners showcasing their cutting-edge new training technologies, research summit to establish our future agenda in healthcare research, and experts and colleagues showcasing their best practices.”
