Simulation. From Day One.

Demian Szyld, MD

Unlike many of the founders of the field of healthcare simulation who came into simulation education by trial and error and innovation and are generally self-taught, Demian Szyld, MD, EdM, at-large member of the SSH Board of Directors, is among the first of the new generation; he knew he wanted a career in simulation even before he went to college or medical school and has gotten formal training in both simulation and education.

“When I was in high school in Philadelphia, we had a chance to take the Red Cross lifeguarding course, that’s how I got started in simulation. Initially as a learner of first aid and CPR and later as a CPR instructor and as a disaster volunteer,” Szyld said. “Even though I did not know it was called experiential learning, this interest remained on the back burner as I got my medical and emergency medicine training.”
