The UCSF Kanbar Center for Simulation and Learning is pleased to announce the selection of the first two Baum Family Faculty Scholars: Sneha Daya, MD, Assistant Professor of Internal Medicine and Tushani Illangasekare, MD, Assistant Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology.

The Baum Family Faculty Scholars program is a new faculty scholar program funded through the Baum Family Presidential Chair for Experiential Learning, a generous gift from John and Mindy Baum. Both scholars will dedicate time over the next two years to advance simulation at UCSF.  Dr. Daya will focus on simulation-based assessment, and Dr. Illangasekare will use simulation to tackle inequity and bias.

The Kanbar Center will launch the new program September 26-27, 2019, with two medical education grand rounds lectures and a special workshop, all presented by visiting scholar Ryan Brydges, PhD, Director of Research at the University of Toronto’s Wilson Centre and St. Michaels Simulation Centre who will share his expertise on assessment and simulation.
