Simulation Fellowship

With a mission to improve the health of the public through simulation science, the Division of Healthcare Simulation Science at the University of Washington strives to improve the quality of healthcare education through technology and innovation.

The Fellowship in Healthcare Simulation Science leverages UW’s expertise in engineering, computer science, robotics, 3D printing, material science, digital art, physical sculpting and molding; while delivering a first-rate education and research experience. The program is designed to advance the safety and practice of healthcare education by providing learners with an environment where they can learn and practice skills before ever using them on a patient.

The goal of the Fellowship in Healthcare Simulation Science is to provide a foundation for creating international leaders in development, evaluation, and delivery of medical education curricula enhanced by simulation technologies. The Fellow will be involved in simulation classes for medical students and residents as well as in the design and implementation of all surgical simulation activities.
