Fellows gain multidisciplinary and leadership expertise through experiential learning.
The Emergency Medicine Simulation Fellowship aims to provide qualified healthcare professionals with experiential learning opportunities to become leaders in interprofessional simulation education.
Working with experts in medical education, fellows will develop simulation curricula and demonstrate leadership as a simulation educator, design and execute a research project, become technically proficient in simulator operations, and learn the basics of managing a simulation program.
The fellowship begins with a focus on developing a foundation in the core fundamentals:
Fellow(s) will plan, develop, and implement a simulation curriculum to:
Fellow(s) will be assigned/choose a faculty mentor for their thesis research project by the end of their 1st month in fellowship in order to begin their research project during the 2rd month. Fellow(s) will have protected time to work on a Research Thesis Project:
