Simulation Fellowship

The NewYork-Presbyterian Queens Medical Simulation Fellowship is a one year guided mentorship program that offers advanced training and expertise in the field of simulation-based healthcare education. The Simulation Fellowship is structured to provide a comprehensive overview of the concepts and application of medical simulation for the education of all healthcare professionals.

Additionally, we encourage fellows to be an integral part of all simulation based administrative activities and research projects. Driving the curriculum is a focus on communication, error reduction, and patient safety. We encourage and advocate for our simulation fellows to become leaders in the field of simulation.
