SimGHOSTS has launched registration for its three summer events in the US, UK and Australia! Looking for affordable hands-on training and peer networking in healthcare simulation technology operations? Join them this summer at a location nearest you to engage with hundreds of others just like you!
About the 2016 Events:
Join hundreds of Sim Techs from around the world at our annual international hands-on training events! The “Gathering of Healthcare Simulation Technology Specialists” is now operating into its sixth year as a US-based non-profit 501(c)3 organization based out of Las Vegas, Nevada.
The 2016 SimGHOSTS events will provide 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 infrastructures, moulage makeup, team communication and leadership techniques, medical physiology and much more. You will also have opportunities to meet with simulation-based vendors to engage with the latest in healthcare education technology.

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 for Administrators of simulation programs!* Sim program managers 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!
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!
