Blog - CMS Welcomes Simulation Resident of the Month, Kai Qui, MBA, MD

The Center for Medical Simulation (CMS) welcomes Kai Qui, who is spending the month of April at CMS on an elective simulation rotation. Kai is in his final year of Anesthesia Residency at the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH). His clinical interest is in critical care and he hopes to use his training in simulation and debriefing next year as a critical care fellow at the University of California San Francisco (UCSF) to improve teamwork and crisis management for complex patients.

Kai is originally from Irvine, California. He received his bachelors degree in biologic engineering and management science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and went on to obtain an MBA from Harvard Business School and an MD from Harvard Medical School. Prior to his redidency at MGH Kai worked as a mangement consultant for Bain. Outside of work Kai enjoys strategy board games, pickup sports and mixology.

CMS’ elective simulation rotation is available to anesthesia residents of the Harvard Teaching Hospitals here in Boston. The goal of the rotation program is to expose residents to the potential and operational use of simulation for education, clinical training and research. Over the course of the month, residents develop simulation scenarios including patient records, plot, setup, debriefing notes, and references.

CMS also offers online and in-person Simulation Fellowships ranging from 3 – 12 months for physicians, nurses and allied health professionals with a minimum of two years in clinical practice and high motivation to pursue advanced training in simulation-based healthcare education.
