To everyone going to IMSH - Have a blast!

Registration for IPSSW2015 is now open -

I've added some new documents to the Resources page, including a job description, job profile example and some debriefing documents.

ASPIH's national simulation scoping project summary can be downloaded here

CAE Healthcare just announced plans to expand surgical simulation portfolio through distributor agreement with VirtaMed

I just learnt about this company - Noldus:

Simulating events adds to our understanding of human behavior for example when under stress. A simulated operating room can provide a secure environment for training and evaluation: new protocols or high-tech tools can be tested and different scenarios can be simulated. A variety of data such as video streams, information from movement sensors, physiological data, and more can easily be integrated in a Noldus’ solution (medical simulation software: Viso and The Observer XT).
Noldus (multi-room) labs make use of the latest video technology, many different data acquisition systems, and software such as Viso, the multi video recording suite, and The Observer XT, user-friendly software for research and analysis.

Tom Cotter mentioned this auto-follow camcorder system by Soloshot - could be a neat addition to your sim center.
