Experience Simulation to the Fullest. Real Time. Real Students. Live Action.
Every year, for the last 16 years, a spectacular group of people from all over the world and from every level of healthcare come together to exchange ideas on how to push the envelope of medical simulation to improve learning, competency and ultimately, save lives.
At HPSN 2012, we had over 1,000 medical simulation experts join us for three action-packed days of learning with speakers, training courses, hands-on sessions and fun, not to mention the Poster session, METI Cup at HPSN and The 2nd Annual METI Awards. It was by far our most ambitious, well attended and successfull HPSN to date. Thanks to all our attendees and for those who were not able to attend...we hope to see you next time at HPSN 2013.
The purpose of this international, collaborative conference was to focus on innovative education models and practical learning approaches for initial and continuing education of both healthcare students and practitioners.
At HPSN 2012, more than 100 free concurrent sessions were offered and presented by leading educators in the field of medical simulation. Whether you're a physician, nurse or paramedic, and regardless of what brand of simulator you use, you'll find workshops that will motivate and inspire you to take learning with simulation to a whole new level at HPSN Conferences!
HPSN 2012 offered a number of invaluable training courses at HPSN. Whether you use CAE Healthcare products or any other brand of simulator, HPSN is the ultimate place to discover hands-on tricks and tips for optimizing simulation in your learning environment. Book early as space is limited.
Special Interest Groups
The Special Interest Groups (SIGs) are an HPSN tradition. The SIGs are designed to allow individuals with a common interest around simulation and learning to come together in an open forum. These are facilitated groups with a flexible agenda. In the SIG forum, individuals are encouraged to share success stories, seek input on challenges and network with each other.
