‚ÄčThe S3 Conference 2022 is a culmination of hard work, commitment and efforts from three healthcare simulation institutes across the globe. SingHealth Duke-NUS Institute of Medical Simulation (SIMS), Society for Simulation in Europe (SESAM) and The Gathering of Healthcare Simulation Technology Specialists (SimGHOSTS) have a common vision of enhancing healthcare simulation training for healthcare professionals.

The SingHealth Duke-NUS Institute of Medical Simulation (SIMS) is Singapore's largest simulation facility with a comprehensive range of simulation modalities, cutting-edge technology and training programmes. SIMS is committed to delivering quality simulation training by providing a safe and supervised environment for healthcare professionals to sharpen their clinical skills. The institute draws upon the synergy of collective expertise, curriculum and resources in SingHealth. With a rich legacy in clinical education, SIMS aims to be the leading global institution in medical simulation, pushing frontiers in patient safety.

Society for Simulation in Europe (SESAM)'s mission is to encourage and support the use of simulation in healthcare for the purpose of traning and research. Members include physicians and nurses from a broad range of specialties, technicians, engineers, psychologists, physicists and biologists.

SESAM organises and supports meetings in a number of different ways:

  • The Annual Meeting brings together simulation enthusiasts from all over the world for a three day meeting.
  • SESAM-supported working meetings allow members to teach colleagues key issues of simulation in an educational format and discuss defined questions in an investigational format.
  • SESAM-endorsed meetings are simulation-oriented meetings with relevance for the SESAM membership.
