The Emergency Medicine STAR Center Simulation Fellowship focuses on five major categories of simulation:
- Principles of adult-learning theory
- Advantages and limitations of simulation-based education as it applies to health care
- Simulation case development and curricula development
- Operational techniques appropriate to a world-class experiential learning center
- Publishing work in academic journals related to simulation medicine
Fellows in the program will also become knowledgeable in simulation-based technologies, AV system technology and will participate in the daily operations of the STAR Center and actively engage in the team process that’s necessary for the effective functioning of a medical simulation center. Our fellow will have an opportunity to participate in medical student clerkship simulation, emergency medicine residency simulation, faculty level simulation courses, as well as in-situ monthly simulation.
Our fellows will also have a unique opportunity to participate at the Human Emulation, Education, Evaluation, Lab for Patient Safety and Professional Study Center (HELPS), a simulation center operative by Adam Levine, MD and the anesthesia department bi-monthly, as well as North Short PSI simulation center monthly in order to provide unique perspectives of simulation and increase exposure to larger centers and unique operative structures. Fellows will participate in once a month Division Journal Review and also organize and plan “ALL NYC Journal Clubs” with other simulation fellows and faculty every 8 weeks.
