NYSIM Hosts First Annual Symposium for Fellows in Healthcare Simulation on May 4, 2015

NYSIM Fellows Kristen Uquillas and Halley Ruppel co-chaired the Symposium for Fellows in Healthcare Simulation on May 4, 2015 at NYSIM. Over 30 fellows and fellowship directors attended the one day symposium. The sympo-sium provided the opportunity for fellows and fellowship directors to network, share research and capstone pro-jects, and learn about career development in simulation education. Four plenary speakers presented on diverse topics relevant to healthcare simulation fellows. Maria Shiau, MD, presented on promotion and teaching portfoli-os; Barbara DeVoe, DNP, presented on interprofessional learning in simulation; Adam Levine, MD, presented on the role of mentorship in simulation career development; and Rami Ahmed, MD, presented research on the char-acteristics of medical simulation fellowships in North America. Thirteen fellows presented original research and capstone projects, ranging in topics from in-situ simulation to resident remediation and interprofessional learning. The symposium also included a panel of fellowship directors, who discussed the key ele-ments, function and future of simulation fellowships. The symposium concluded with an off-site networking recep-tion. Participant feedback was positive and we are hoping to host this as an annual event.
