I completed residency and fellowship at Stanford University combining anesthesiology, patient safety, simulation, and medical education research. I then completed a master’s degree in medical education at Johns Hopkins University. Now I am an Assistant Professor of Anesthesiology, Assistant Director of the Human Simulation and Patient Safety Center, and Assistant Director of the Anesthesiology Residency Program here at Duke University. My passion lies in medical education innovation and effectiveness. My goal for this blog is to utilize the power of Web 2.0 to interact with students, educators, and anesthesiologists to move our field forward and share useful information. I also enjoy using technology to improve all aspects of life, from exercise to dining, to even creative uses for emojis to text Annemarie and Brian. Outside the hospital, I enjoy traveling, hiking, and going to concerts. Online, one of my favorite sites is usefulscience.org – otherwise, I’m usually on Twitter. You can follow me @AnkeetUdani. I look forward to you becoming a part of my community!
