The Department of Emergency Medicine in conjunction with Rush University and NorthShore Medical Center offers an integrated Simulation Fellowship. The Simulation Fellowship provides advanced training for Emergency Medicine physicians interested in pursuing a career in academic emergency medicine, utilizing simulation-based medical education. This one-year fellowship equips fellows to develop, implement and evaluate simulation‐based educational programs for hospital faculty, residents, medical students, nurses and pre-hospital providers while developing a foundation in medical education theory and practice. The experience and training includes the use of simulation modalities such as high‐fidelity mannequins, task-trainers and standardized patients.

The fellow work under the direction of Fellowship Director – Michelle Sergel, MD, Director of the Cook County Simulation Center and Co-Director of the Rush University Simulation Center – in Chicago, Illinois.

The Simulation Fellowship is comprised of three components: Education, Scholarship and Service.
