Dear Friends and Colleagues,

It gives me great pleasure on behalf of the Dubai Healthcare City (DHCC) to welcome you to the Second Clinical Simulation Conference (CSC) in Dubai, between 24 to 26 February, 2015.

At our very own Mohammed Bin Rashid Academic Medical Center (MBR-AMC), this houses the institution of Khalaf Ahmad Al Habtoor Medical Simulation Center (KHMSC), the leading center for clinical simulation in the Middle East.

We are building on the great success of the First Conference, CSC 2014, held in the same venue in February 2014. This year we are proud to collaborate with one of the leading societies for Simulation, The Society in Europe for Simulation Applied to Medicine (SESAM). It’s a pleasure to announce the 1st SESAM MENA Conference and Second on a row Clinical Simulation Conference in the Region.

The theme of “Simulation: The Heart of Patient Safety” aims to deliver more hands-on training, more one-on-one technical support, and in-depth information about how to operate a simulation center. You will have the opportunity to engage with mentors, learn from experts and cultivate your network of colleagues who are dedicated to improving healthcare training and patient safety.

CSC is our unique and most comprehensive event in the region, which brings together medical simulation speakers and professionals from around the globe. This is the premier conference, networking and professional development event for healthcare users and anyone interested in healthcare simulation. We have invited world renowned keynote speakers that are coming from different parts of the globe to share their expertise and knowledge through their respective presentations.

The Dubai Healthcare City is spearheading this event as a part of our continuous development and promotion of the education portfolio and to keep in position as an internationally recognized medical education hub.

I look forward to welcoming you to our beautiful city, Dubai for the Second Clinical Simulation Conference!

The conference will incorporate a number of industry leading learning tools such as workshops, as well as structured poster sessions and key note speeches from world renowned experts in the field of Clinical Simulation. On behalf The Society in Europe for Simulation Applied to Medicine (SESAM), I would like to bid everybody a warm welcome to the 1st SESAM MENA Conference and Second on a row Clinical Simulation Conference in the Region.
