Onze keynote speaker voor het DSSH Congres is bekend: Walter Eppich!. Zijn keynote: On Faculty Development and Faculty Maintenance in Medical Simulation

Walter Eppich, MD, MEd, received his medical degree from Heidelberg University Faculty of Medicine in Germany in 1999. He completed his pediatric residency at Duke University Medical Center and Oxford University-John Radcliffe Hospital, and a pediatric emergency medicine fellowship at Yale New Haven Children’s Hospital. In 2007, he completed a Master in Education degree with a focus on curriculum and instruction. He currently practices clinically as an attending physician in the pediatric emergency department at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago.

Walter is Assistant Professor of Pediatrics and Medical Education at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, where he was an inaugural member of the Feinberg Academy of Medical Educators.. His particular academic areas of interest are debriefing, pediatric team training and faculty development and he is Director of Faculty Development at Northwestern’s Center for Education in Medicine. Walter has delivered workshops, invited lectures and led faculty development courses on feedback, debriefing and other topics at Northwestern and many national and international conferences. He has served as invited faculty on basic and advanced simulation instructor courses nationally within the United States, and internationally in Europe, Australia and Hong Kong as a partner of EuSim, PAEDSIM and the Center for Medical Simulation (Boston/USA).

Walter has been a co-investigator on several simulation-related grants. These projects include: (a) the development and evaluation of a simulation-based curriculum in pediatric emergency medicine; (b) the development and evaluation of a scripted debriefing as part of the EXPRESS pediatric research collaborative; (c) the assessment of debriefing quality; and (d) risk-informed in situ simulations for pediatric emergency transfers.

Walter is active in the international simulation community. He has served as Co-Chair of the 2010 International Meeting on Simulation in Healthcare (IMSH) and is currently a member of the Board of Directors for the Society for Simulation in Healthcare. Walter will give a exciting presentation on the issue that everybody talks about the curriculum, but nobody talks about those who actually use it to teach… Join Walter in the discussion following his keynote presentation on Faculty Development and Faculty Maintenance.
