Dear Simulation Technology Specialists:

It is an honor and privilege to be the next president of the most innovative and passionate group of individuals dedicated to supporting healthcare simulation around the world.

Another area that we are focusing in 2018 is research.

The planning for SimGHOSTS 2018 USA and SimGHOSTS Australia 2018 is going well thanks to our marketing, event, and training teams' hard work and efforts! SimGHOSTS USA and Australia 2018 will be the best SimGHOSTS events ever, and we would like to see you all at an event.

Vice President Nick Brauer has this message:

It is an honor and privilege to have been chosen to as the 2018 Vice President of our SimGHOSTS community.  

As medical simulation continues to grow and mature, so do those who are intimately involved in the industry day in and day out. While this is very true with my full time career at the University of Tennessee, it is just as true with my role and responsibilities at SimGHOSTS.  Over the next year my goal is to advance our community further than it is today. These advancements will come in my areas of interest:  research, community recognition and strengthening relationships with like-minded affiliate partners.  

It's time to step out and step up...

Nick Brauer
