Her term of service will start January 1, 2016 and end December 31, 2017. We are excited to have a growing simulation leadership presence in the international society. Speaking on her new role, Dr. Lerner said, “I have been in the ‘trenches’ of all aspects in simulation, and now I am hoping to take it to the next level and to facilitate collaboration, coordination, innovation and growth in our simulation community at SSH.”

Chris graduated in 2015 from New Jersey City University with an accelerated B.S. in Nursing. His first B.S. was in Engineering Physics with a minor in Philosophy from Fordham University. Chris originally joined the NYSIM team as a full time Simulation Facilitator in June 2012 and continued with us per session during his nursing program. He is excited about starting his career as a Registered Nurse, particularly in the fields of Palliative Care and Psychiatric Nursing.

When asked “Why did you want to become a simulation facilitator” he answered "My first career was in the nonprofit sector, specifically in the field of Immigrants’ Rights. I was preparing to transition to a new career in the Health Sciences when I heard about this opportunity to work with NYSIM as a Simulation Facilitator. NYSIM continues to be an amazing resource for my personal and professional development!"

One fun fact about Chris: When Chris is not at NYSIM, he is teaching poongmul-nori (Korean percussion) to LGBTQ Asian Pacific Islanders and their allies. These drummers can be found marching/performing at various events throughout the city, including the annual NYC Pride Parade.

NYSIM Visiting Fellowship Update

Silvania Klug Pimentel from Curitiba Brazil spent 6 months at NYSIM as a Visiting Fellow. During her time at NYSIM she worked with Demian Szyld and Aku Ude-Welcome (Director, Surgical Skills Lab) on various projects. Along with Mary Ellen Sheldon, she is a co-chair of the April 11th 2nd Annual Symposium for Fellows in Healthcare Simulation. She created and piloted several informed con-sent simulation sessions for the department of surgery at NYU. Additionally she played an important role in data collection and research with Adina Kalet, (Assistant Director for Research) and is a co-author on a recently accepted manuscript on the culture of safety, an effort that Grace Ng led this fall. Congratulations Silvania!

Silvania sent us the following communication this month: “Dear NYSIM friends, I’m back home in a much warmer weather. Its good being back but I’m missing you all already. You made my time at the NYSIM wonderful as I learned so much and had a great time doing so. Upon my return I will start work at a sim center in Brazil. My hope is that I can count on you all for your expertise, advice and maybe to coordinate a visit to my center.“

NYSIM Coordinator’s Corner

The gallery show “Bedside Manner” by photographer Corinne Botz, illuminates simulation from both the SP and learner perspec-tives, ran from January 1 through February 6 at Benrubi Gallery. The show includes photos of Standardized Patients, as well as a short film that gives a glimpse into both real and simulated worlds and has artistic and educational impact. It also includes a photo of Ginny Drda, Program Coordinator at NYSIM, who is honored to be included in the exhibit.
