In 2012, the GOT SIM "jack-of-all-tradeshows" became SimGHOSTS!

The "Gathering of Healthcare Simulation Teqchnology Specialists" is a unique meeting as it is the only conference specifically designed for sim techs, or those operating and maintaining the day-to-day operations of medical simulation labs. In 2012, SimGHOSTS began establishing itself as the place for Sim Techs to exchange ideas and contacts, receive specialized training in manikin hardware & software, audiovisual production, moulage makeup, team communication & leadership techniques, medical terminology and much much more. 

SimGHOSTS 2012 was sold out with over 152 Sim Techs from around the world who traveled to the Clinical Simulation Center of Las Vegas for three days of hands-on training in medical simulation related operations and technologies.

Who attended?
