academic fellowship in simulation


We’re accepting applications for a 2-year Fellowship in Simulation Education beginning July 2020. To apply, please email your CV and cover letter to Sumaira Ahmed no later than September 23, 2019.

STRATUS offers a two-year fellowship in Simulation Education. Applicants will learn all aspects of simulation education, complete a Master of Science in Health Professions Education from the MGH Institute of Health Professions and participate in the education, leadership and systems courses at the Harvard Macy Institute. The fellow will have a primary role in the STRATUS Non-Technical Skills Research Laboratory.

Educational focus

During the two-year fellowship program, you will:

  • Develop, implement, debrief and assess, simulation-based curricula

  • Become proficient in technical areas of simulation, design and operations

  • Build analytic skills and learn the path to becoming an independent researcher

  • Publish original research and scholarly work in peer-reviewed journals

  • Present your research and curricula at local and national conferences


STRATUS recognizes that fellows are trainees working in an apprenticeship mode in preparation for a professional career as a clinician-educator. A faculty mentor will work closely with you to identify specific goals for your professional growth and identify a mentoring team. Fellows are also expected to function responsibly and autonomously within STRATUS and the complex environment of Harvard Medical School and affiliated institutions.

Application Process

Applications for the fellowship will be accepted from interested physicians who have completed at least two years of an ACGME residency with a record of achievement in medical education. The application deadline is September 23, 2019 for a July 1, 2020 start.
