Academic Bio

Dr. Henricksen is board-certified in Pediatrics and Pediatric Critical Care. Currently he serves as an Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at the University of Utah in the Division of Critical Care Medicine. He is both the Medical Director of the George and Esther Gross Clinical Simulation Program at Primary Children’s Hospital, and the Intermountain Simulation Medical Director. His specific goal is to improve patient safety and quality of patient care through simulation training that incorporates training for teams, procedures, communication, and leadership.

His academic interests center around simulation education and reliability training. These include the following:

-Simulation to enhance educational technique and curriculum as medical training hours are shortened and competence of training programs are mandated.

-Develop Crucial Conversation Simulation to enhance communication of difficult conversations such as consent, bad news delivery, or medical error disclosure.

-Develop Task Trainer Simulation for procedures such as placement of central lines and chest tubes.

-Continue Team Training Simulation as it is the most exciting and common type of simulation used at Primary Children's Hospital and seeks to aid clinicians to be cohesive teams under crisis situations.

Simulation training will be used to teach generations of caregivers and Dr. Henricksen is dedicated to helping define what role simulation will play in the future of medicine. Patient safety, quality improvement, and risk management initiatives will all be improved with simulation education and training. Incorporating simulation training into resident, fellow, and attending curriculum, as well as maintaining team training for all clinicians are his goals.
