Simulation-Based Medical Education Fellowship Program

Why Train at UT Southwestern

The UT Southwestern Medical Center Simulation-Based Medical Education Fellowship Program is a one-year long, non-Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education fellowship that provides postgraduate training in Simulation. Our fellowship program is available for emergency medicine physicians who are board-certified/board-eligible by the American Board of Emergency Medicine and American Association of Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine, and who graduated from an ACGME-accredited emergency medicine residency program.

The purpose of the Simulation Fellowship Program is to train medical professionals in medical simulation educational practices – in particular, those applying to the practice of emergency medicine. Among our faculty are Emergency Medicine residency-trained physicians, the Director of Emergency Medicine Simulation, and a prior fellow of Simulation Medicine. Under this astute leadership, fellows will achieve excellence in simulation education through the use of evidence-based teaching practices, assessment strategies, innovative technology, team-based training, and research for the advancement of medical education.
