SIM Tank Winners Announced

The 2020 SIM Tank took place on Monday, September 14, in front of an esteemed panel of judges and live virtual audience. This popular event showcased the top three exemplary projects for their innovation and demonstrated creativity to advance training and practice in the field of otolaryngology.

Congratulations to the following 2020 SIM Tank winners!

The AAO-HNSF would like to acknowledge and thank the following individuals for participating in the 2020 Call for Simulation. Each project showed innovation and creativity to advance training and practice in the field of otolaryngology. We look forward to seeing these works demonstrated at next year’s Simulation Reception & Showcase during the AAO-HNSF 2021 Annual Meeting & OTO Experience in Los Angeles, California.
