SIM-one’s Healthcare Simulation Exposition is the largest interprofessional and multidisciplinary simulation conference in Canada. Each year, the SIM Expo brings together healthcare leaders in university, college and hospital sectors, comprised of administrators, educators, clinicians, SIM centre managers and directors, and researchers from all health professions across Canada and beyond. The SIM Expo prides in its strong culture of networking, building relationships, and uniting the simulation community. The annual conference allows participants to connect directly with peers, experts and future collaborators in healthcare simulation.
This year's theme is SIMULATION & GAMIFICATION, with a focus on applying gaming principles to improve simulation, as well as virtual patients and e-simulations to enhance learning.
The conference takes place in The International Centre, centrally located and easily accessible near Toronto Pearson International Airport.
