At the end of December we said farewell to and celebrated the work of one of our esteemed directors, Dr. Grace Ng, PhD. Grace left NYSIM to pursue a new professional opportunity, but will always be a part of the NYSIM family. She was instrumental in the development and expansion of NYSIM as the inaugural Health Professions Director beginning in 2011 and contributed to the advancement of NYSIM’s strategic vision over the last ten years. Dr. Ng successfully increased the visibility and national reputation of NYSIM, and formed numerous strategic partnerships across CUNY and NYULH. She successfully oversaw the growth of key initiatives, including development and implementation of interprofessional education, simulation advisory councils, and scholarly projects. Dr. Ng was an expert in simulation education, and provided professional development in her NYSIM Instructor Course to over 600 learners. Her innovative efforts contributed greatly to the growth and integration of simulation at NYSIM, CUNY, and NYULH. Thank you, Grace, for your service, teamwork, and leadership. We will miss you!
As Grace embarks on the next phase of her career, NYSIM is recruiting for the Health Professions Director position at NYSIM. Anyone interested in the position should reach out to Katie Tame, Administrative Director, on our contact form.
