Inaugural VSA Simulation Conference explores technology and the future
The maiden Victorian Simulation Alliance Inc. conference saw us host professionals from across the health sector – a day that explored innovation and industry possibilities.
We welcomed guests on campus and took the opportunity the celebrate Victoria’s leading approach in the simulation field.
