The 11th International Pediatric Simulation Symposia and Workshops – IPSSW2019 – will be held in Toronto, 20-22 May, 2019.

Renowned and global experts will gather for the world’s largest meeting dedicated exclusively to pediatric and perinatal simulation for three days of in-depth discussion on the role simulation plays to provide safe and effective care to sick children and infants, and the continued evolution and expansion of pediatric simulation across the globe.
