Simulation Fellows

At this time, the Center for Virtual Care currently has four fellows engaged in the Center. Their activities include curriculum development and delivery, research, as well as technical training for hands-on running of the simulators. This type of training is broadly applicable to medical education in general but ultimately will help develop leaders of the future.
