We can’t wait to see you! Join us as return to onsite, in-person educational programming for SSH SimOps 2021: UNIFY, being held in Tampa, Florida, July 14-16, 2021, at the beautiful Center for Advanced Medical Learning And Simulation (CAMLS).
Now being offered for a seventh year, SimOps is designed to support the professional development of the Simulation Operations Specialist (SOS).
Certainly, we recognize that travel restrictions may still be in place in July, so we’re also offering SimOps through Delivers (our highly popular online educational format). SimOps Delivers will combine live-streamed keynotes from SimOps LIVE, virtual networking opportunities, and prerecorded educational content accessible anywhere, anytime.
SimOps Call for Content deadline: Feb 25
The SimOps 2021 Call for Content is now open! Submit your educational content now to present either LIVE or VIRTUAL. You can also submit research abstracts and SimVentor innovations for presentation at SimOps 2021. Learn more about the Call for Content and don’t delay! The submission deadline is Thursday, Feb. 25, 2021.
SimOps explores the innovative application of operational technology in a team-based environment. Through the use of new tools, best practices and experiential learning techniques, SimOps enables healthcare simulation professionals to advance their skills while building stronger team connections for the future. Through hands-on learning experiences, inventive demonstrations, a cutting-edge exhibition hall, and the latest research findings impacting simulation operations, SimOps provides a unique experience for the SOS that strengthens the community of practice.
About this year’s theme: UNIFY
The SimOps 2021 Planning Team proposes the theme, UNIFY, as a symbol of the common ties that draw all SOS into the field of healthcare simulation. One of the greatest strengths of the Simulation Operations and Technology Section (SOTS) is the vast array of backgrounds and experience brought to the field. Finding commonalities within these varied roles and responsibilities will assist in moving the operations field forward into the future.
The power of the word unify is unlimited. Not only does it stand as a theme to rally all members of the operations community, the word also serves as a reminder that the field is united in one common goal: to improve patient safety. Unify serves as a reminder that cohesiveness within the profession will ultimately guide the field toward the goal of a safer future.
