HPSN World 2013

San Francisco, CA USA
Jun 30, 2013 - Jul 2, 2013


Thank you for attending HPSN World 2013!

More than 50 countries represented. 100+ educational sessions. The latest technologies designed to train the next generation of healthcare professionals, and to improve clinical competency and patient safety today.

At HPSN World 2013, we gathered for the first time ever in San Francisco to learn from each other and to propel medical simulation forward.  Our next great challenge:  deploying simulation training and technologies into professional clinical settings to help reduce the rate of medical errors.

We thank all of you, who are driven to improve healthcare training and outcomes, for being part of our simulation community.

Please mark your calendar to attend HPSN World 2014 April 29 through May 1 of next year in Sarasota.  We will see you next year!
