More than 70 education and clinical leaders, and simulation training experts from across southwestern Ontario converged at Fanshawe College this past weekend to create new synergies in simulation education and training. Representatives from the Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry, University of Windsor, and Fanshawe, Lambton and St. Clair Colleges, as well as London's teaching hospitals and those from across the region, all attended the full-day retreat - the first of its kind to be held on simulation.
Participants had the opportunity to hear from keynote speakers Dr. Viren Naik, medical director, University of Ottawa Skills and Simulation Centre, and Lt. General (Ret.) Thomas Baptiste, president and executive director, National Centre for Simulation, Florida; both of whom are renowned for their expertise in creating strategic collaborative simulation training centres.
