Step Out and Step Up - Submit a Proposal for SimGHOSTS 2018


By SimGHOSTS Community Director Nick Brauer


SimGHOSTS USA 2018 event will be held at The University of Tennessee Health Science Center for Healthcare Improvement in Patient Simulation (CHIPS) from July 31st – August 3rd.  Abstracts are now being accepting for all proposal types:  Poster, Podium and Workshop presentations.  Podium presentations will be classified as beginner, intermediate and advanced.  Feel free to submit a topic of your choice. 

Here are a few broad ideas:

  • Audiovisual Technology
  • Information Technology
  • Management & Operations
  • Medical/Clinical 
  • Moulage & Theatrics
  • Simulation Technology
  • Educational practices

 Submissions are due by March 9, 2018 (Friday).  Presenters whose presentations are accepted will receive a discount code to the conference. 

For those who have never presented at SimGHOSTS or other conferences, I personally encourage everyone to step out and step up.  As a presenter you will  gain confidence, meet others in the field, make life-long friends and best of all you will learn from the audience as they learn from you.  The ideas and knowledge we all bring together as group is powerful. If you are new to presenting or for more suggestions about what to present, take a look at an earlier blog post  with lots of hints and tips.
