The USF Health Center for Advanced Medical Learning and Simulation (CAMLS) is excited to announce The Interprofessional Simulation Fellowship at USF Health CAMLS. The fellowship is designed to create the next generation of leaders in healthcare education, who have the experience necessary to lead multi-disciplinary simulation centers, drive innovation in experiential learning, and research best practices in simulation-based education. Positioned in the heart of downtown Tampa, USF Health CAMLS is one of the world’s largest freestanding simulation centers and is uniquely positioned to provide the fellow broad exposure to a variety of learners, simulation modalities, large-scale organizational operations, and educational interventions to advance interprofessional education and improve patient safety. Our goal is to inspire and create the next generation of healthcare educators, leaders, and researchers in simulation.
