Interprofessional Advanced Fellowship in Clinical Simulation

The Durham VA Medical Center’s Simulation Center is proud to announce that it has received approval for an Interprofessional Advanced Fellowship in Clinical Simulation. The goal of this fellowship is to develop leaders with vision, knowledge, and commitment to advance, implement, teach, and evaluate simulation-based training strategies and apply simulation in other clinical areas to improve healthcare for Veterans and the Nation.

The Durham VA will provide a one-year, comprehensive program that offers core knowledge and experience that will enable the fellow to develop and operate a simulation program.  The program will also use its resident experts, including those at the academic affiliate Duke University, to provide specialized education in change management; quality improvement; inter-professional training in teamwork, communication, and leadership; development of multi-modal simulation curricula including virtual simulation and computer modeling; and simulation-based research.

If you would like more information about this fellowship, which may start as early as July 2014, or if you know good candidates who should be informed about this opportunity, please contact Dr. Jonathan Mark at jonathan.mark@duke.edu in our department or Dr. Chan Park (chan.park2@va.gov), who is the Medical Director of the Durham VAMC Simulation Center.
