IMSH 2026

IMSH 2026, aka the 2026 International Meeting for Simulation in Healthcare, is hosted every year by the Society for Simulation in Healthcare (SSH) 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 and simulators like those from Laerdal, Elevate Healthcare, Education Management Solutions, Medical Shipment, SimX, Avkin, TacMed Solutions, WISER, UbiSim, OMS, HTC Vive and many more. IMSH 2026 will occur in San Antonio, Texas, from January 10-14, 2026. As updates become available, more conference information will be added to this HealthySimulation.com page.

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 at SSH, shared. 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.

History of IMSH

The Society for Simulation in Healthcare, formerly the Society for Medical Simulation, was founded in 2004 and renamed in 2006 to attract non-physician healthcare providers using healthcare simulation. The first annual International Meeting on Medical Simulation (IMMS) was held in 1995. In 2007, the IMMS meeting was renamed the International Meeting for Simulation in Healthcare (IMSH).

Ultimately, when deciding 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).

IMSH offers 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. The event will feature groundbreaking research regarding guidelines in healthcare simulation as well.

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 of the previous year, and individuals interested in joining the IMSH email list can register online.

Other vendors in attendance will include HealthStream, Nasco Healthcare, PCS, SimVS, SKILLQUBE, Sentinel U, and more! See previous IMSH updates below!
