Michael Rosen is a Human Factors Psychologist with applied and research interests in the areas of teamwork and patient safety as well as simulation-based training, performance measurement, naturalistic decision making, and quality and safety improvement. He has published over 50 peer reviewed articles and chapters in these areas with work appearing in journals such as Human Factors; Theoretical Issues in Ergonomics Science; Simulation in Healthcare; Academic Medicine; Academic Emergency Medicine; Journal of Management; Simulation & Gaming: An Interdisciplinary Journal; Joint Commission Journal on Quality and Patient Safety; Journal of Emergencies, Trauma, and Shock; Annual Review of Medicine; and Aviation, Space & Environmental Medicine.
In 2009, he was a co-recipient of the M. Scott Myers Award for Applied Research in the Workplace from the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology. This award was given in recognition of his work in developing innovative team decision making training for Explosive Ordinance Disposal Teams, including a simulation-based curriculum and performance measurement tools.
Prior to his appointment at Johns Hopkins, he was a Research Psychologist supporting the Department of Defense Patient Safety Program where he lead and contributed to a variety of patient safety efforts including the development of simulation, measurement, and evaluation tools for teamwork training in healthcare. He received his Ph.D. in Applied Experimental and Human Factors Psychology from the University of Central Florida in 2010 under the mentorship of Eduardo Salas at the Institute for Simulation and Training.
His current research focuses on the development, validation, and application of behavioral markers of team performance in a variety of clinical domains, team feedback strategies, and the development of methods for using in situ simulation and diagnostic classification models to understand unit safety needs.
