We are pleased to congratulate UBC RCPSC-EM Residents, Drs. Holly Sherman and Hélène Morakis, on receiving funding from the Resident Doctors of BC 2020 Resident Innovation Fund (RIF). The goal of the RIF is to highlight and support residents working to benefit the healthcare system, the lives of patients, and healthcare providers. This grant will benefit their research project, which aims to develop and pilot an emergency medicine simulation curriculum for medical students.

“We are honoured to have received the RIF grant and are excited to carry out our research project: Emergency Medicine Simulation Curriculum for Medical Students” says Dr. Morakis. “We hope our project will provide an opportunity for medical students to solidify fundamental resuscitation skills and increase their exposure to simulation, while providing an opportunity for EM residents to practice leading simulation.” Following the evaluation of this curriculum, Drs. Sherman and Morakis hope for this model to be translatable to other residency programs.
