Biography

Dr. Mena Khan graduated from University of California San Diego and completed her medical degree at Ross University School of Medicine. Upon graduation, she worked at Ross University on the Dominica campus in the Department of Clinical Medicine in the following roles: Clinical Teaching Fellow, Clinical Instructor and then Simulation Manager, all in the short time frame of three years. In addition to her medical degree, her background includes teaching as a public school teacher in California for over ten years. Her love of education evolved into a desire to teach adult learners at a high level. Introduction to medical simulation became the conduit to unify her two passions: medicine and education. In 2015, she applied for and completed the Simulation Instructor Course at the Center for Medical Simulation at Harvard University. In 2016, she became a Certified Healthcare Simulation Educator (CHSE) with the Society for Simulation in Healthcare (SSH). During this time, she was integral in maintaining the Society of Simulation in Health Care accreditation of Ross University School of Medicine's simulation program as one of only seven international centers to hold that title. She has overseen and managed several faculty development courses that incorporate debriefing techniques, history of medical simulation and adult learning theory. Most recently, she and Dr. Sasso spearheaded the accreditation process for CMU College of Medicine Institute for Medical Simulation through the Society for Simulation in Healthcare, for which CMU was recently rewarded.
