Jeffrey Marc Taekman
Professor Emeritus of Anesthesiology

I direct the Human Simulation and Patient Safety Center.  The HSPSC framework, with clinicians and educators working side-by-side with human factors engineers, has been cited as a model for improving healthcare safety and quality.

My research focuses on the use of technology (primarily simulation) to improve learning and processes within healthcare systems.  Particular areas of interest of mine include learning technologies,  informatics,  learning analytics, mobile computing, and immersive education. My funded projects include our pioneering work using simulation to improve the safety and quality of clinical trials, studying the science of achievement, and developing various interactive learning technologies (serious games and simulations) focused on national patient safety issues.
