Saudi Health Simulation Conference April 2018


 By SimGHOSTS President Ferooz Sekandarpoor

This year Saudi Arabia's simulation conference will be held on April 23 to 25th in the city of Riyadh. This is the largest simulation conference in the country which is supported by the Ministry of the Health of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

 There are some great international speakers at this conference who are presenting on the many topics related to simulation. I am very honored to be invited for the 2nd time to speak at this conference; My presentation title is "The Must-Have Healthcare Simulation Technology Specialist" where I talk about the importance of the simulation technology role in the success of any simulation program and showing some data supporting the need.

 I am also delighted to see for the first time at this Conference, Simulation Technology Specialists are getting the chance to have a Sim Technology track that includes the topics and workshops that directly related to their roles.

 Mr. Mohammad Alamar and Mr. Jalal AlFroukh are the track organizers and happen to be SimGHOSTS members and have attended our SimGHOSTS events in USA, Dubai, and Australia. Of note in the track is a Sim Tech competition - a SimGHOSTS “Bug Busters inspired-event”! The objectives of this event are networking between SimTechs, Knowledge exchange and demonstrating the importance of SimTechs in Simulation for the conference attendees.

 There is also a plan for SimTechs to meet separately during the conference to discuss their success and challenges and SimGHOSTS will be there to help and facilitate the conversion.
