The Rush University Department of Emergency Medicine Simulation Fellowship provides a one-year immersive experience in simulation-based medical education for graduates of 3- or 4-year Emergency Medicine Residency programs. The fellow is integrated in a critical teaching role for the Rush Emergency Medicine Residency, which has been built with an emphasis on developing resuscitation specialists during simulation first. Graduates will be prepared to launch their career in academic Emergency Medicine with the skills to become simulation directors, center directors and expert debriefers.
Our 12-month curriculum includes monthly didactic sessions in collaboration with Chicago Simulation programs, which focus on resident, faculty and medical student simulation considerations; interprofessional simulation; global health simulation; EMS; Surgical and Anesthesia Simulation; and many other topics. Fellows will develop a strong foundation in medical education theory and practice. By the end of the fellowship, you will be well-prepared to take the Certified Healthcare Simulation Educator Exam offered by the Society for Simulation in Healthcare.
