We are excited to announce our keynote speakers for the 2015 SIM Expo – Dr. Teresa Gore, president of International Nursing Association for Clinical Simulation & Learning (INACSL), and Dr. Teodor Grantcharov, Canada Research Chair (CIHR-funded) in Simulation and Surgical Safety. These two simulation experts are revolutionizing the field of simulation and will open day one and two, respectively, of the 2015 SIM Expo.
The annual healthcare simulation conference takes place on December 14 & 15 at the Intercontinental Toronto Centre hotel. This year’s theme is Simulation
 & Integration in health education curricula. We hope you have your ticket(s) ready!
