The Center for Medical Simulation and the Hospital Virtual Valdecilla will be presenting the IMS Simulation Instructor Workshop, “Simulation as a Teaching Tool” at HvV in Santander, Spain twice this coming June. One workshop will be held in English and the other in English and Spanish.

This intensive 4 day IMS/Europe Simulation Instructor Training and Debriefing workshop taught by Harvard and Virtual Valdecilla Faculty is specifically designed for those educators seeking to create high quality healthcare simulation programs.

Ample opportunities are provided for networking and sharing experiences. Attendees join a growing community of Institute graduates who are positioned as leaders in the field.
