Dr. Matthew B. Weinger, the Director of the Vanderbilt Center for Research and Innovation in Systems Safety, holds the Norman Ty Smith Chair in Patient Safety and Medical Simulation and is a Professor of Anesthesiology, Biomedical Informatics, and Medical Education at the Vanderbilt University School of Medicine. He is also the Director of the Simulation Technologies Program of Vanderbilt's Center for Experiential Learning and Assessment. Dr. Weinger has been teaching and conducting research in anesthesia patient safety, human factors engineering, and clinical decision making for more than two decades. Dr. Weinger has received more than $6 million in direct research support from federal agencies and major non-profit foundations. He has over 140 publications that cover a range of topics including simulation, human factors, use error, user interface design and evaluation, measures of clinician performance, workload, alarms and vigilance, clinical expertise, automation, clinician fatigue, and clinical decision support. He holds a Bachelor's degree in electrical engineering and a Master's degree in Biology (neurosciences) from Stanford University in 1978. He completed his MD degree at the University of California–San Diego in 1982 and did his anesthesiology residency training at the University of California–San Francisco. Dr. Weinger is Co-Chairman of the Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI) Human Factors Committee that is responsible for developing American national standards for all medical device user interfaces. He is the Associate Editor for Health and Health Systems for the journal Human Factors and on the Editorial Board of Simulation in Healthcare.
