Biography

Dr. Elizabeth Anne Hunt is an associate professor of anesthesiology and critical care medicine and pediatrics at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. She serves as the David S. and Marilyn M. Zamierowski Director of the Johns Hopkins Medicine Simulation Center. She specializes in pediatric critical care.

Dr. Hunt graduated as a member of the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Society from Albany Medical College of Union University. She completed residencies in internal medicine and pediatrics at Duke University and conducted a fellowship in pediatric anesthesiology at Johns Hopkins. Additionally, she earned an M.P.H. and a Ph.D. in clinical epidemiology from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.

Her work analyzing in-hospital resuscitation systems through the use of simulation earned her the 2003 Pearl M. Stetler Grant for Women Researchers, the 2004 Johns Hopkins Helen Taussig Young Investigator Award, and the First Place Award for a Platform Presentation at the 2004 and 2010 International Meetings on Medical Simulation. Dr. Hunt has been fortunate to have the opportunity to present, practice or teach about pediatric resuscitation issues throughout the world.

    Research Summary

    Dr. Hunt's thesis involved the use of simulation to assess the performance of pediatric residents during pediatric cardiopulmonary arrests.

    She is a founding member and senior co-chair of INSPIRE (International Network of Simulation-based Innovation, Research and Education).

    Dr. Hunt's research examines innovative methods to improve the quality of care delivered and ultimately clinical outcomes for children who suffer a cardiopulmonary arrest. This includes implementation of rapid response systems, cardiac arrest data capture and debriefing, medical device and simulator redesign and the introduction of novel simulation educational approaches including data driven debriefing and introduction of the approach “Rapid Cycle Deliberate Practice.”

    She has been invited to present her simulation and rapid response team research around the globe and has been fortunate to have the opportunity to present, practice and teach issues pertaining to pediatric resuscitation throughout the world.
