Several years ago I worked with a team of Simulation Technicians across the state of California to build a comprehensive job responsibilities list for this position (which you can download here). The term everyone agreed upon was Simulation Technology Specialist — and indeed that is the name that is incorporated into SimGHOSTS which stands for The Gathering of Healthcare Simulation Technology Specialists. We added “healthcare” so that non medical-simulation related groups could identify us as apart of healthcare, as there as “simulation technicians” in a variety of other fields — mostly from aviation.

If you had to choose a new title for the position I would argue for “Simulation Technology Specialist”!
