Our registrars are now regularly rostered to be the on base STAR!
The new STAR shift combines responsibilities for Simulation, Training and Research and runs every weekday at the Bankstown base. The program for the shift is outlined below.
The first few shifts have gone great with real enthusiasm and originality going into the design and setup of the sims.
A celebration and inauguration of the shift was held at our recent CGD with a SIMWARS extravaganza taking place to get everyone in the mood for fake blood and mannequins…
