Simulation offers many research opportunities as it has the ability to recreate emotions, demonstrate non-technical skills, monitor teamwork, identify human and nonhuman safety gaps, train for specific task and etc.  It offers incredible opportunities to ask questions about process as well as offer intervention for possible clinical outcomes. 

Knowing how to ask a research question is one of the most important parts of doing research.  A primary goal of the fellowship is to ask a research question in simulation and contribute to the growing fund of knowledge/application around this tool.
