IPSSW2020 Keynote Speaker - Buddy Teevens

IPSS is proud to announce our keynote speaker, Buddy Teevens.

Buddy Teevens is an American football coach working to improve players’ safety by incorporating simulation into his coaching. He is the head football coach at Dartmouth College, a position he held from 1987 to 1991 and resumed in 2005.

Teevens led Dartmouth to the 1978 Ivy League championship and as a coach led Dartmouth football to back-to-back Ivy League titles in 1990 and 1991, returned as the head coach of the Big Green football program in 2005 and won two more titles in 2015 and 2019. Bringing simulation to the football field, Teevens created an innovative tackling dummy to lessen player injuries.

IPSSW2020 will feature distinguished international speakers from a range of industries with important insights applicable to our practice.

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.
