Today, we find simulation education being used as a training method in many current ophthalmic and anesthesia residency programs, as well as nurse training programs. However, access to simulation training varies greatly between training programs and geographic locations. The COVID–19 pandemic brought into sharp focus the need for medical training programs to consider simulation as an alternative method to develop procedural skills, to respond to disruptive events to medical training. The virtual simulation symposium brings together thought leaders, industry, educators and practitioners in the field of ophthalmic simulation education and training to share the latest innovations, guide application, and provide key resources in simulation training.
