Simulation training

Participants of the simulation training sessions can follow live demonstrations of interventional techniques and practice certain procedures under the guidance of an expert instructor and/or simulator technician.

This popular series of training sessions is comprised of a 20-minute round-table discussion facilitated by experts in the field delivering key knowledge and practical tips, followed by one hour of hands-on experience using high-fidelity simulators.

Each session is aimed at delegates with a specific level of experience (core, intermediate or advanced), and the delivery of each session is adaptable to respond to the delegates’ interests, with emphasis placed on small group teaching, allowing for close interaction with the expert faculty.

The round-table discussions are themed around learning objectives which relate to a specific clinical or procedural topic. Equipment and devices related to the specific topic will be available to demonstrate deployment techniques.

There will be 6 groups each day, including one session dedicated to students (SP-SIM).

How to participate

Participation will be free of charge, but places are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.

As these sessions offer practical medical training, participation is for qualified medical professionals only.
