One and two-year fellowship options are available. The two-year fellowship option will involve taking classes from the University of Tennessee College of Education and will lead to a Master’s Degree in Education. Our curriculum is geared toward both ACS-AEI fellowship and CHSE certification requirements. The fellow will complete at least one research project per fellowship year, be actively involved in ongoing UTCAMS research projects, work collaboratively with other academic departments, submit at least one simulation or research grant, and develop and assess new simulation-based curricula/programs. In addition, the fellow will attend weekly and monthly UTCAMS meetings and at least two national simulation conferences.
For the Master’s Degree Program (2-Year Fellowship) an individualized plan will be created, including several core educational classes and a complement of courses more specific to the fellow’s clinical interest in medical simulation. A typical work week consists of four simulation/education days which are spent in the simulation center, bioskills lab, or classroom and one administrative day that can be used for self-study, research projects, or clinical duties.

The applicant should have completed at least two years of an MD/DO residency program or an advanced degree equivalent (Masters or a terminal degree) with two years of relevant work experience.
