Chad Epps

From Biology Teacher to Simulation Professor

Chad Epps always thought he’d be a teacher. And, in fact, he was. He started his career as a 9th grade biology teacher. But he had an interest in medical school, and a personal motivation as well.

During their childhood, Epps’ sister was involved in a serious car accident, and was also the victim of a medical error that has dramatically affected her abilities to this day. Epps was motivated to help others through medicine, to prevent medical errors and to continue as an educator. A career in healthcare simulation was born.
