: Dr. Zhang is a triple graduate of Tufts University, where he received a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering, Masters in Biomedical Engineering, as well as a Medical Doctorate Degree within 9 years of rigorous and interdisciplinary training. Despite this condensed training period, Dr. Zhang distinguished himself among his peers through his dedication towards medical education and technologic innovation, as evident from his involvement in medical education course developments, teaching opportunities, and innovative medical inventions. Throughout his career, Dr. Zhang has been consistently and substantively involved with education, teaching, and simulation training. He has published numerous articles on simulation modules, debriefing techniques, augmented reality as an interactive learning platform, and the use of gamification frameworks in a simulated environment to tackle pedagogical and patient safety challenges. Dr. Zhang is currently the principal investigator of a study that aims to develop and implement simulation-based training to improve orthopedic distal radius fracture reductions in emergency department (ED) patients.Dr. Zhang is currently a clinical instructor and assistant clerkship director at Thomas Jefferson University, where he will be completing his education fellowship as well as the rigorous Master of Health Profession Education program at the University of Illinois, Chicago. Dr. Zhang recently received a certificate of completion for the prestigious American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) Teaching Fellowship and the Pennsylvania Medicine Simulation Facilitator’s Course during his first year of fellowship.
