The University of Maryland Emergency Medicine (UMEM) Simulation fellowship is a one-year program designed to create leaders in medical simulation and emergency medicine education.
Fellows will divide their time between didactic teaching related to simulation, hands-on experience, and research. They will also receive a faculty appointment in the Department of Emergency Medicine at the University of Maryland School of Medicine as clinical instructors, and work part-time at one the various clinical sites within the University of Maryland Emergency Medicine network, with full benefits.
Fellows will be an integral part of medical student and emergency medicine resident education, administering regular simulations, and using simulation for assessment and remediation. Fellows will have opportunities to work with other specialties in developing and implementing their simulation scenarios. Curriculum development, evaluation, and debriefing are some of the skills that will be taught, as well as exposure to the financial, administrative, and operational details of simulation center management.
Fellows will be encouraged to attend several national educational opportunities, such as the Comprehensive Instructor Workshop at the Center for Medical Simulation and ACEP Teaching Fellowship, in addition to other national conferences that focus on emergency medicine education and/or simulation.
By the completion of the fellowship, fellows will be experienced in curriculum development, creating and running simulation scenarios, debriefing skills, as well as simulation center management.
