Marc Auerbach is the Director of Pediatric Simulation and Associate Medical Director of Trauma at Yale New Haven Children’s Hospital. Marc is the Co-chair of INSPIRE (International Network for Simulation-based Pediatric Innovation Research and Education), the largest simulation based research network in the world, with multiple ongoing projects and over 1.5 million dollars in grant funding.

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. Most recently he has served 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 is currently PI on an AHRQ grant that aims to redesign the process of transitioning injured children from community hospitals to trauma centers. Additionally he is collaborating on an AHRQ grant to develop a screen-based simulation for pediatric disaster triage training.
