“At the Crossroads of Simulation…
…Bringing the World closer together”

Simulation repre​sents one of the greatest and most impactful developments in the area of medical education, competency acquisition and training. It has evolved with a wide variety of applications, including undergraduate and postgraduate healthcare professionals training, faculty development, scenario-based learning, multi-casualty or patient incidents, virtual reality, standardised patients and many more.

The S3 Conference brings together some of the best minds from Europe, America and Singapore, to share best practices and be updated on the latest and the state-of-the-art simulation capabilities. This collaboration will be another bridge towards solving complex, multi-faceted problems together, making it all the more cost effective and efficient. 

Besides the medical, healthcare and scientific components, issues such as culture, communications, soft skills and team work will also be covered. The S3 Conference brings in some industry partners at the forefront of simulation and its related technology as well. It will offer an exciting platf​orm for more networking and partnerships, educational opportunities, technological exposures and research collaboration, with regional and global groups and institutions.

Don’t forget to take some time off to also enjoy exotic Singapore; the sights and sounds of our multi-ethnic people and culture. I wish everyone a fruitful conference and an amazing experiential journey through Singapore, especially for the first time visitor.   

Together, let us advance our systems thinking and safe design as well as our global healthcare through simulation.

"Only by getting to know different perspectives, 
can we create high-impact, crucial medical simulation training with maximum effectiveness.​"

The inaugural S3 Conference 2017 in Singapore is a milestone event for the region in healthcare simulation. SESAM, together with SIMS and SimGHOSTS, will create an exclusive meeting place for the global medical simulation community to network, share experiences, develop ideas and advance patient safety. Everyone with a stake in healthcare performance improvement is warmly welcome to attend this Conference!
Healthcare simulation is an approach that incorporates teamwork, quality improvement, safety and best practices for educators, technicians, participants and institutions, which benefit patients. The S3 Conference will encourage collaboration across borders and broaden horizons to enhance the way we teach and implement medical simulation. Only by getting to know different perspectives and how expertise from each profession enhances medical simulation, can we create high-impact, crucial medical simulation training with maximum effectiveness.
At the S3 Conference, you will meet like-minded professionals from all over the world and have the opportunity to discuss your workplace projects. There will also be dedicated time to study the most advanced simulation techniques from world leaders in medical simulation technology and attend inspiring talks from experts in various fields of medical simulation. We hope that the meaningful feedback and skills updates you will reap from this Conference add new perspective to your work. From all of us at SESAM, SIMS and SimGHOSTS, we look forward to seeing you at the S3 Conference 2017 in Singapore!

"​There is something for everyone passionate about medical simulation 
at the S3 Conference 2017.​"

The S3 Conference 2017 is a first in SimGHOSTS' seven-year history of simulation education and training. Held in partnership with SIMS and SESAM, this comprehensive conference will provide healthcare professionals with the greatest range of must-know topics. Never before has international expertise from so many domains within healthcare simulation come together in Asia -- or the world!

The S3 Conference is a unique learning opportunity that has been in development for over three years. The Conference will bring together leading experts in simulation from across the globe and maximise your value with three international conferences at one venue in Singapore. The Conference will explore a spectrum of related simulation specialties, will connect delegates to international peers and facilitate networking with the leading experts in the field. The major players in the medical simulation field will also be present to provide the latest training in cutting-edge simulation technology, such as manikin hardware repair workshops, software programming classes, moulage tutorials, and many more. There is something for everyone passionate about medical simulation at the S3 Conference 2017.

In the wake of exciting, new innovations in our field, we stand at the crossroad of simulation. Healthcare simulation has reached a point, where the global community of healthcare professionals is moving beyond "early adopters" to the "early majority" stage in the advancement of medical simulation. By being part of the inaugural S3 Conference, SimGHOSTS envisions the empowerment of healthcare simulation professionals. We encourage you to join us at the S3 Conference to adopt and utilise the latest medical simulation technology so that learning and patient safety outcomes are improved. We look forward to seeing you in Singapore!
