On June 20th, SIM-one honoured the 2013 graduates of its Keystones of Healthcare Simulation Certificate Program at the 2013 Education Celebration Event.

SIM-one's annual Education Celebration Event celebrates the achievements of SIM-one's Education Division, our graduates, alumni and current course participants. The event featured plenty of networking time between friends and colleagues.
