Enabling wider sharing of knowledge, expertise, and educational innovation related to simulated practice across the healthcare professions



SimGHOSTS, aka The Gathering of Healthcare Simulation Technology Specialists, is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization launched in 2011 out of the University of Nevada: Las Vegas specifically dedicated to empowering the growing international community of healthcare simulation champions through hands-on training events, online resources and professional development support. Their mission is to provide the technical training required by the individuals and institutions around the globe who are improving patient care outcomes through educating healthcare professionals via advanced simulated learning environments.


ASPiH are helping to build a strong national community of simulation technicians and we recognise the increasing importance of this role to the field of simulated practice. Our affiliation with SimGHOSTS facilitated the 1st Technician specific event in the UK - SG-ASPiH 2015 in Leeds.

The second UK/Europe event will take place at St Georges Advanced Patient Simulation Centre (GAPS) in London from 18th -20th July 2016 and promises to be bigger and bolder than last year!

ASPiH members benefit from a discounted SimGHOSTS membership fee (10%) and associated access to the rapidly increasing bank of information on the SImGHOSTS new website.
