Highlighting Scientific Content
SESAM has three great “State of Art” sessions during SESAM 2016. This week, they would like to share Dr. Fajzal Hagi’s bio as one of their invited speakers.
Dr. Fajzal Hagi is a Chief Resident in Neurosurgery at the Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry in London, Ontario, Canada.
As a surgeon and educator, Faizal has a passion for improving health services though the innovative and evidence-based use of simulation-based education, both at home and abroad. To that end, his efforts have focused on simulation instructional design, platform and curriculum development, and faculty development in simulation pedagogy in a variety of clinical domains and at a local, national, and international level. Currently, as a member of the IPSS-WFPICCS-Malawi collaboration, he is working with the Malawi Ministry of Health and other stakeholders to strengthen Malawi’s capacity to develop and deliver simulation-based education within the limits of its resource-constraints. The goal of this collaboration is to use simulation and other innovative educational methods to generate sustainable improvements in the delivery of pediatric health services throughout the country.
Lisbon is one of the oldest cities in the world, and the oldest in Western Europe, predating other modern European capitals such as London, Paris and Rome by centuries. According to legend, the location was named for Ulysses, who founded the settlement after he left Troy to escape the Greek coalition. Later, the Greek name appeared in Vulgar Latin in the form Olissipona. Julius Caesar made it a municipium Felicitas Julia, adding to the name Olissipo.
