The STAR Center Fellowship in medical simulation at ISMMS is a unique two-year experience. Through a combination of simulation education, medical education, and emergency medicine education focused programs, we have created a unique opportunity for our simulation fellows to learn with, from, and about all aspects of education.
The STAR Center Simulation Fellowship focuses on preparing the next generation of physician educators. A focus will be on the principles of adult-learning theory, simulation curriculum design and development, implementation of simulation-based programs (including debriefing), and learner assessment. Simulation fellows will have the opportunity to publish their work in peer-reviewed journals and present at local and national conferences.
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.
Simulation fellows will play an active role in the education of medical students, residents, faculty, prehospital care providers, and interprofessional teams. Through a combination of experiential learning and formal academic course work in Medical Education at the conclusion of the fellowship the fellow will be able to:
- plan, implement, and evaluate simulation-based curricula
- become competent in simulation operations
- develop analytical skills while working on a research project
- publish scholarly work in peer-reviewed journals
- present scholarly work at local and national conferences
