Multi-Disciplinary Simulation-Based Education

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

The International Pediatric Simulation Symposia and Workshops – IPSSW2019

Our annual meeting – IPSSW – is the worlds largest meeting dedicated exclusively to pediatric and perinatal simulation, bringing together clinical care leaders in the field of pediatric simulation with educators, researchers, and patient safety experts. We gather as professionals from around the globe to support and facilitate the improvement of pediatric healthcare through simulation.

IPSSW provides us the opportunity to expand ideas, broaden horizons, and promote excellence in education and investigative research. As a global organization, we welcome all healthcare professionals who care for children and infants, regardless of where you practice.

We are the International Pediatric Simulation Society

IPSS is a global community of pediatricians, pediatric subspecialists, 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 in pediatric simulation.

We strive to bring the knowledge and skills we have gained to the widest possible audience, and welcome all healthcare professionals who care for children and infants regardless of where you practice, for we truly are IPSS Global.
