Marc is a Professor of Pediatrics and Emergency Medicine at Yale. He is the Director of Pediatric Simulation at the Yale Center for Medical Simulation and was the founding co-chair of INSPIRE, the world’s largest simulation-based research network.

His academic work focuses on the use of innovative techniques and technologies, such as simulation, to measure and improve the quality of pediatric emergency care. His overarching goal is to ensure that all children, no matter where they live, go to school or travel, receive the highest quality emergency medical care.

Marc serves in a national role with HRSA/EMSC on the EIIC executive committee and co-leading the EIIC Knowledge Management as well as serving as the education co-lead of the Pediatric Pandemic Network.

Prior to these roles he served as the CT EMSC State Partnership Grant Medical Director for seven years and as an investigator on four different EMSC targeted issues grants and the leader on the EIIC Prehospital Emergency Care Collaborative. His projects involve working closely with prehospital and hospital emergency care coordinators leading pediatric efforts in community EDs and community EMS agencies.

In addition Marc is actively working on multiple initiatives through other organizations (including SAEM, Pediatric Trauma Societies, American Heart Association, Emergency Nurses Association, American Academy of Pediatrics, NASEMSO). Marc serves as the PI of the ImPACTS study, a national effort to describe, measure and improve the quality of care provided to critically ill and injured pediatric patients in emergency departments using simulation.

Marc completed a K30 Masters of Science in Clinical Investigation with a focus in translational medicine at New York University and post-graduate course work on simulation at Harvard’s Center for Medical Simulation. He has substantial leadership experiences in trauma and simulation research as a board member of the International Pediatric Simulation Society, co-chair of the Pediatric Academic Society’s Special Interest Group on Simulation-Based Research and as a leader on the Pediatric Trauma Society’s Guideline Committee. He has served as the principal investigator on multiple funded trauma and simulation research projects to ensure the optimal care for ill and injured children. This includes a grant-funded project using simulation training for disaster preparedness, a regional trauma simulation program, a local office based preparedness program.
