This year's Simulation Olympics were a bigger event than ever.

Nineteen teams and 85 participants competed last week. The action took place over three days at the Clinical Simulation Centre in the new Queen's School of Medicine building.

Over 25 KGH registered nurses and respiratory therapists were able to take part thanks to KGH's new interprofessional education funding. Teams from as far away as Montreal and Toronto also showed up to test their skill.

The winning team was comprised of Dr. Mark Froats (Emergency Medicine), Dr. Adam Szulewski (Emergency Medicine), Jane Lewis (RN Emergency department at KGH), and Heather Lamb (Queen's Meds student, class 2013).
