Multi-Disciplinary Simulation-Based Education

IPSS promotes and supports multi-disciplinary simulation-based education,
training and research among all subspecialties.

Who We Are

The International Pediatric Simulation Society (IPSS) was founded in 2007 by 11 multi-national pediatric and neonatal medical practitioners. Their goal was to promote multi-disciplinary simulation in all healthcare subspecialties that treat infants and children. IPSS has since grown into a global community of pediatricians, neonatologists, pediatric nurses, educators, and other allied health professionals from over 30 countries, all dedicated to improving the care of infants and children worldwide through multi-disciplinary simulation-based education, training, and research. We strive to bring the knowledge and skills we have gained to the widest possible audience. We organize an annual meeting, the International Pediatric Simulation Symposia and Workshops (IPSSW), to bring together clinical care leaders in the field of pediatric simulation with educators, researchers, and patient safety experts. This gathering provides us the opportunity to expand ideas, broaden horizons, and promote excellence in education and investigative research. We welcome all healthcare professionals who care for children and infants regardless of where you practice, for we are IPSS global!
