The simulation events at the Annual Meeting offer an interactive, hands-on format to enhance surgical skills training. The following events are sponsored by the AAO-HNSF Simulation Education Committee.

2023 Call for Simulation Abstracts – Now Open!

Do you have an innovative simulator model or simulation activity that you would like to share with the otolaryngology community?

The American Academy of Otolaryngology–Head and Neck Surgery Foundation (AAO-HNSF) invites you to submit an abstract for consideration to present at the Simulation Reception and Showcase, held during the AAO-HNSF 2023 Annual Meeting & OTO Experience in Nashville, Tennessee.

We invite you to submit an abstract for consideration, to demonstrate your current simulator and/or simulation activities during this year’s Simulation Reception and Showcase event. Successful abstract submissions will include the following:

  • An innovative and creative approach to the development, validation, or study of a simulator, simulation, or simulation-based curriculum;
  • Demonstrate the successful usage of the simulator model or simulation activity with proven demonstrative results and its replicability throughout the specialty; and
  • Describe the simulator model or activity’s relevance to advance training and practice in the field of otolaryngology.

The top three proposals selected will present and compete at SIM Tank. Both events will be held Monday, October 2.

Submission deadline: Monday, June 12, 2023.
