Sad News: 2016 SimGHOSTS DUBAI Event Has Been CANCELLED!
JUNE 2016 UPDATE: Unfortunately due to the economic downturn in the Middle East in the past year Simulead is unable to support the SimGHOSTS 2016 Dubai MEA event. The SimGHOSTS leadership worked for weeks to find a solution, but without this support the team cannot put on the meeting this year. However, we believe that this regional situation is already improving and are making plans for a 2017 event in the Middle East -- so stay tuned!
Now entering its sixth year, The Gathering Of Healthcare Simulation Technology Specialists 501(c)(3) organization provides support to those operating healthcare simulation technologies around the world.
These specialized hands-on conferences are a unique training meeting which allows for direct vendor engagements with the real “end-users” of simulation-based technology. Join these international technical-based professional medical simulation community to train and showcase your products/services through exhibitor hall tables and/or direct hands-on class experiences.
For the past six years, SimGHOSTS has continued to see increased attendance by the international community of Simulation Technology Specialists at the annual hands-on training events, which increased to four events in 2015. With a mission to connect the world’s growing population of simulation technology professionals together, the non profit organization’s leadership has continued to engage in relationship building with organizations inside and outside the United States. We are now affiliated with INACSL, HIMSS, ASPiH, Simulation Australia, SSH, and IPSS. Our first annual Middle East event hosted in 2015 by the Mohammed Bin Rashid Academic Medical Center was a success which brought together simulation champions from around the world to learn and work together.
Who Should Attend SimGHOSTS Events?
Anyone responsible for the technical operation of a medical simulation lab including full-time or part-time Sim Techs, or clinical educators tasked with operating the day-to-day of simulation spaces. As well, anyone evaluating medical-simulation based technology should strongly consider attending as most major industry vendors are encouraged to attend.
Other meetings are better suited for clinical educators specifically looking to learn how to teach with medical simulation.
*New Thought* Administrators of simulation programs should also consider sending their institution's AV and IT related staff members who are responsible for supporting the simulation program. In our most recent events, staff from AV and IT departments outside of the healthcare simulation program found immense benefit from participating in SimGHOSTS to better understand the needs of their institution's simulation program!
