International Pediatric Simulation Society (IPSS)


The International Pediatric Simulation Society (IPSS) is dedicated entirely to pediatric, perinatal and associated health care providers and organizations utilizing simulation-based education to improve care and safety for children.

IPSS has been established to promote and support multi-disciplinary simulation-based education, training and research in all subspecialties that care for infants and children. The Society organizes an annual meeting that brings together leaders in the field of pediatric simulation with educators, researchers and patient safety experts. The meeting – IPSSW – provides an opportunity to expand horizons, cross-fertilize ideas and promote excellence in education and investigative research.
