Education and Research Fellowship in Medical Simulation logo

STRATUS offers a 2-year, SAEM-approved Education and Research Fellowship in Medical Simulation. During this hybrid program, fellows will learn and practice all aspects of simulation-based education and research, with a primary role in the Human Factors and Cognitive Engineering Lab. Fellows will also complete a Master of Science in Health Professions Education at the MGH Institute of Health Professions, and will have an appointment as a postdoctoral research fellow at both Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School.

In addition to having an active role in all STRATUS educational activities, fellows will have the opportunity to work in ongoing research projects, participate in monthly research seminars and design, develop and execute their own research idea through a capstone project.


STRATUS recognizes that fellows are trainees working in an apprenticeship mode in preparation for a professional career as a clinician-educator-researcher. Dr. Roger Dias, MD. PhD, MBA will be your primary mentor and will work closely with you to identify specific goals for your professional growth and build 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.
