#OTOMTG19 features several simulation events. The Tulane Center for Advanced Medical Simulation and Team Training will host a “Worst Case Scenarios Managing OTO Emergencies in Practice” workshop. The 4.5-hour course is geared toward practicing otolaryngologists to prepare them for low frequency, high stakes emergency situations. Attendees will participate in a rotation of six simulated otolaryngology emergencies. Space is limited, so make sure you reserve your seat. See the top three most innovative simulation project authors present to a panel of expert judges while competing for the top prize during the SIM Tank. The Simulation Reception showcases innovative and novel otolaryngology simulators or simulation projects. Table-top simulator demonstrations and presentations will be on display highlighting individual and team accomplishments.
