Justin Jeffers is an Assistant Professor in the Division of Pediatric Emergency Medicine at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. He did his pediatrics residency at Brown University and his pediatric emergency medicine fellowship at Northwestern University. Most recently, he obtained a Master of Education in the Health Professions degree from the Johns Hopkins University School of Education where he continues to serve as an adviser.
Academically, his interests are focused on simulation-based learning, curriculum development and assessment, and tying together these areas with pediatric resuscitation. Dr. Jeffers has numerous publications targeting this focus and continues to look for new ways to improve the care we provide to the sickest children.
During his time as a member of IPSS, he has served as co-chair of the education committee and on numerous IPSSW meeting oversight committees as well as co-chair of IPSSW 2020 in St. Petersburg, Florida.
I am a UK-trained Neonatologist working in Starship NICU in Auckland, New Zealand. I am a member of the Douglas Starship Simulation faculty and lead the simulation programmer in NICU. My key simulation interests include education, communication and patient safety. I have been an active member of IPSS since 2011, member of the Education Committee since 2012, am a past Co-Chair of the Education Committee (2017-2018) and a current member of the Board of Directors. In collaboration with others, I established the IPSS-INSPIRE Fellowship in 2018 and am on the working group leading this initiative. My vision for IPSS is to continue to support collaborative knowledge sharing and research development in the pediatric and perinatal simulation community. My wish for IPSS is to see an increasing number of non-physician members and to support and develop the ability of those still at the early stage of simulation.
