Alvin H. Baum Family Fund Chair of Simulation and Innovation, Assistant Dean for Medical Education, NorthShore University HealthSystem, Evanston, IL; Clinical Associate Professor, Emergency Medicine, University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine

My interests include medical simulation, development of expertise, procedural training, and I believe that “A” in KSA is more important than “K” or “S” if you want to be great at anything in life, not just learning the art of medicine.
