Last week 85 simulation technicians gathered in Nevada at the Clinical Simulation Center of Las Vegas to meet with peers and receive specialized training from leading industry experts.

Gathering of Technicians 2011 Pictures Now Available!

We opened up the event with a reception from METI at the top of the Stratosphere! Tom Doyle, VP of Education & Training and Chief Learning Officer of METI, informed the attendees that METI is 100% behind supporting the technicians! Thanks METI!



Clinical Simulation Center of Las Vegas Director Lance Baily gave a keynote speech about the current state of the healthcare simulation industry and the serious need for developing support for simulation technicians. A review of his keynote speech will be available soon for you to watch on YouTube.


Special thanks also goes out to the following companies:
Gaumard – For providing technical training staff for programming and hardware sessions.

Laerdal – For providing technical training staff for programming and hardware sessions.

METI Learning – For providing technical training staff for programming and hardware sessions.

iSysGlobal – For sponsoring tech breakfast on both days!

Pocket Nurse – For sponsoring tech lunch on both days! (We had pizza on Saturday!)

Speakers and the topics they presented:

John Cordova RN provided an amazing breakdown of need to know medical knowledge and patho-physiology.

Jonthan Sturak, MS provided a 2-hour session on the fundamentals of audio/video production.  Techs gathered into groups of 6 and produced small video orientations for a sim lab.

Suzanne Sharp BSN, MS put together a great hour-long presentation on the first year development of the CSCLV sim labs.

Captain Steven Wilkinson from gave an amazing talk about the history and lessons learned from simulation in the aviation industry.

Jane Kleinman RN, MAOM & Kristy Chambers RN, MSN from Medical Simulation Design gave us great insights on empowering technicians.

Bobbie Merica from ran a great workshop on “Moulage” makeup 101!

Thanks again to the CSCLV Staff and Deans Yucha, Synder & Bar-on for letting us put on this great event!
