This month, NYSIM would like to celebrate Dr. Sandy Zabar for her recent honor as one of six recipients of The New York University Distinguished Teaching Award. Established in 1987, this nomination-based award recognizes the exceptional work of NYU’s most innovative and outstanding faculty. Throughout her career here at NYU, Sandy has served in various leadership roles, as co-director of the Primary Care Residency Program; director of the Division of General Internal Medicine and Clinical Innovation; director of the NYSIM’s Standardized Patient Program; and founder of the Program for Medical Education Innovations and Research (PrMEIR). Here at NYSIM, Sandy’s presence and expertise in developing Objective Structured Clinical Examinations (OSCE) with our Standardized Patient Actors/Medical Educators has truly been invaluable. Sandy’s remarkable attention to organization, training, assess-ment, and evidence-based research consistently makes NYSIM and NYU at large a more excellent educational environment for our learners. We are both proud of and grateful for Sandy, and we hope you will join us in celebrating Dr. Sandy Zabar on this distinctive honor.
Thank you and Congratulations, Sandy!
Congratulations to all, and great work at #IMSH2019!

NYSIM hosted a 4 hour immersive simulation on Patient Safety and Quality to orient the In- coming Interns to the NYULH culture of being a High Reliability Organization. The program included Group OSCE’s, a Patient Safety Room and Case Based Discussions. In June 2017 we hosted 156 incoming interns from 7 residency programs and this year we will host 205 in- coming interns from 17 residency programs.
The oral abstract presented at SGIM, Simulated First Night-onCall (FNOC): Establishing Com- munity and a Culture of Patient Safety for Incoming Interns, presented at the SGIM 2018 annual meeting, has been selected as the Best Oral Presentation in Quality Improvement and Patient Safety.
