American College of Surgeons Accredited Fellowship in Simulation and Health Professions Education
Lahey Hospital & Medical Center in Burlington Massachusetts is recruiting applicants for a one year Simulation Fellowship in Health Professions Education starting July 1, 2021. This fellowship is accredited by the American College of Surgeons. The goal of this fellowship is to create leaders in medical education who are particularly interested in the use of simulation training to maximize student learning and help achieve institutional educational, patient safety and quality goals. Graduates of the Fellowship Program will obtain the skills necessary to lead graduate and postgraduate medical education programs as well as conduct research to advance the field of medical education through simulation.
This fellowship is intended for surgical or anesthesia residents to spend one year working and learning in the Lahey Simulation Center under the supervision of experienced faculty in order to develop their expertise in the field of simulation-based health professions education and achieve academic productivity to help advance their academic career. Educational content is supplemented through Lahey’s affiliations with professional development courses at Tufts University School of Medicine and Center for Medical Simulation (CMS), a Harvard-affiliated training center.
The fellow will be on-site 40 hours per week, and be available to assist, learn and teach in all courses offered at the simulation center and affiliated sites. The fellow will participate in weekly meetings and course-work with their fellowship educator, staff meetings, operations and steering committee meetings. Teaching is an integral part of experiential learning, and the fellow will develop these skills by participating in undergraduate, graduate and post-graduate medical education. The fellow will participate in and lead research projects with mentorship from faculty and staff at the medical center. They will present and disseminate their research through participation at regional and national meetings and manuscript submissions. They will receive assistance in manuscript preparation and travel to present their work. Funding will be commensurate with PGY/level of experience or research interests.
