Dr. Jung is a strong proponent of simulation-based medical education and has emphasized experiential learning elements in all her curricula. Her primary academic interest is in simulation-based medical education. Believing that quality medical education should be accessible to all medical trainees worldwide, she has worked extensively to advance resuscitation training and the use of simulation in resource-limited international settings. She has led numerous simulation-based education initiatives and faculty development workshops in Africa, Asia and the Caribbean, and was awarded an International Education Scholars Grant by the Johns Hopkins Institute for Excellence in Education. Outside of simulation, Dr. Jung has expertise in assessment methods, and is currently one of the leaders of a national consensus conference to improve clinical assessment of medical students in emergency medicine.
