The affordable hands-on training event for those individuals and institutions using healthcare simulation technology is celebrated its 6th year with events in Melbourne, London, and Peoria!

2016 events:

Hundreds of Simulation Champions from around the world gathered at our annual international hands-on training events in 2016! The “Gathering of Healthcare Simulation Technology Specialists” operated into its sixth year as a US-based non-profit 501(c)3 organization based out of Las Vegas, Nevada.

The 2016 SimGHOSTS events provided a meeting place for you to exchange ideas and network with technical peers as well as receive specialized training in:

  • Manikin hardware repair and software programming
  • Audiovisual equipment debugging
  • IT networking and infrastructures
  • Moulage makeup
  • Team communication & leadership techniques
  • Medical physiology
  • And much more.

Participants also had the opportunitie to meet with simulation-based vendors to engage with the latest in healthcare education technology.

Who Attended these SimGHOSTS Events?

Those 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 attended 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. 

Some administrators of simulation programs also sent 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!

SimGHOSTS events provide hands-on training workshops, special pre-symposium courses and podium presentations in:

  • Manikin Programming & Hardware Repair
  • A/V System Design, Integration and Consolidation
  • IT Networking & Debugging
  • Trauma & Suturing Moulage Makeup
  • Video Production & Editing Techniques
  • Team Communication & Leadership
  • Medical Pharmacology for Scenarios
  • Career Development & Staff Management
  • Much much more!
