Simulation Medicine Fellowship (Minnesota)
The Mayo Clinic Department of Experiential Learning’s Multidisciplinary Simulation Center in Rochester, Minnesota, offers a Simulation Fellowship. As a fellow in the program, you will become knowledgeable in simulation-based technologies, participate in the daily operations of the Mayo Clinic Multidisciplinary Simulation Center, and actively engage in the team process that is necessary for the effective functioning of a healthcare simulation center.
A stipend is provided for the fellowship as well as medical and dental benefits. Unfortunately, housing is not provided.
Faculty and mentors
The fellowship is overseen by the Simulation Center’s Medical Director, Torrey Laack, M.D., an emergency medicine physician. Mariela Rivera, M.D., will be the Surgical Fellowship Director for those from a surgical specialty. Mark Morrey, M.D., is the director of the Center for Procedural Skills Mastery and will collaborate with those interested in procedural skills simulation.
Additional mentoring is provided by David Cook, M.D., M.H.P.E. (research mentor) and Usha Asirvatham, M.S.N., R.N., C.H.S.E. (education mentor).
