On August 4 2010, twenty-seven individuals representing sixteen regional, national and international organizations with a substantive focus on simulation in healthcare attended an international simulation leadership summit at London Deanery, UK. The meeting was intended to empower the global simulation community to act collectively as simulation continues to expand exponentially. The summit resulted in agreement by the representatives to form a Global Network for Simulation in Healthcare. Learn more about GNSH History.

GNSH is able to leverage multiple groups and sectors in ways that single organizations cannot and the GNSH Summits provide a unique opportunity for both commercial and non-commercial member organizations to discuss important areas of shared interest.
