We are pleased to offer a one year fellowship in medical simulation and we are currently accepting one fellow for the 2020-2021 year. Simulation is a large component of our Georgetown Emergency Medicine resident, medical student, and ongoing MedStar Emergency Physician (MEP) faculty education. The fellow will work closely with our simulation and safety faculty to develop expertise in educational program development, patient safety training, innovation, operations, and research. The fellow can spend more time in areas of simulation and safety that match their interests and career goals. Upon completion of the program, they will have the knowledge and skills to be able to lead their own simulation program.
The Georgetown/MedStar Emergency Simulation & Safety Fellowship is a one year program designed for graduates of ACGME approved Emergency Medicine residency programs. Candidates will be board certified or board eligible in Emergency Medicine through ABEM or AOBEM prior to matriculation.
We have two high-tech simulation centers in Washington DC and Baltimore. There are many in situ teaching opportunities at the ten hospitals within the MedStar Health system. The fellow will be integrated in the education technology group of MedStar Health, the Simulation Training and Education Lab (SiTEL). SiTEL’s academic partners include the Georgetown University School of Medicine, the MedStar Health Office of Graduate Medical Education, the MedStar Health Research Institute, the National Center for Human Factors Engineering in Healthcare.
Our fellow will be mentored by our core Emergency Medicine Residency and Simulation faculty to learn how to use simulation effectively in education. They will be involved in all aspects of Emergency Medicine simulation which include:
Assist with the design, operations, and implementation of an ongoing faculty curriculum to regularly review and refresh procedural and other critical skills
The fellow will learn many areas of simulation lab operations during the fellowship
