The Simulation Fellowship is based in the Applebaum Simulation Learning Institute and Department of Surgery at Beaumont Health, Royal Oak. The goal of the fellowship is to train and produce individuals with the necessary knowledge, skills, and behaviors to conduct independent simulation-based research and education as part of an academic career and leadership role in Surgical Education.
The program is designed and accredited with the American College of Surgeons Accredited Educational Institute (ACS-AEI). The fellowship experience is tailored to the individual fellow, and the core curriculum is completed over one year of study.
The fellow will work closely with two program directors, Ngan Nguyen, PhD and Nathan Novotny, MD, which gives the fellowship a nice balance of theory and translational experience. The fellow will engage with a wide range of learners, including medical students to senior residents from multiple specialties. The fellow will be involved in development of curricula and medical education as well as implementation of existing simulation-based education. Fellows will also be active in research within the discipline of simulation and medical education and will be expected to work on ongoing projects and develop existing ones.
