Simulation Training


Participants of the Simulation Training can follow live demonstrations of interventional techniques and practice certain procedures under the guidance of a technician and/or instructor.

This popular series of training sessions comprises a half-hour round-table discussion with experts in the field delivering key knowledge and practical tips, followed by one hour of hands-on experience using high-fidelity simulators.


Each session is aimed at delegates with a specific level of experience (core, intermediate or advanced), and the delivery of each session is adaptable to respond to the delegates’ interests, with emphasis placed on small group teaching, allowing for close interaction with the expert faculty.

The round-table discussions are themed around learning objectives which relate to a specific clinical or procedural topic. Equipment and devices related to the specific topic will be available to demonstrate deployment techniques.


Coordinators: R. Kickuth (Würzburg/DE), J.C. van den Berg (Lugano/CH)

Location: Simulator Gallery


How to participate:

Please note that there is NO ONLINE PRE-REGISTRATION for our Simulation Training this year.


All delegates wishing to participate in a Simulation Training are kindly requested to go to the Simulator Gallery before the start of the session. You will receive a ticket which will enable you to participate in that specific training session and you will need to present this at the entrance of the Simultor Gallery before your session starts. Please note that tickets are limited and given on a first come, first served basis.

Participation will be free of charge. However, as Simulation Training sessions offer practical medical training, participation is for qualified medical professionals only.
