Design. Development. Assessment. These are just some of the areas of simulation that WISER’s new fellow Dr. Xudong Chen would like to explore during his one year fellowship at WISER. Dr. Chen joined WISER in November 2015 from the Mental Health Institute, The Second Xiangya Hospital of Central South University in Hunan, China.
As the Vice Director of a clinical skills training center, Dr. Chen would like to focus on several aspects important to running a successful simulation center. Some of his areas of study will be simulation design, operational infrastructure, faculty management, integration of simulation based instruction, assessment and feedback. During his fellowship, Dr. Chen would like to “Gain an understanding of design and conduct research programs utilizing simulation based education.” We welcome Dr. Chen not only to WISER but also to Pittsburgh.
