Personal profile

Research Interests

Jeffrey H. Barsuk, MD, MS, SFHM is a Professor in the Departments of Medicine and Medical Education at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. He graduated Alpha Omega Alpha from Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine and completed a residency in Internal Medicine at the McGaw Medical Center of Northwestern University at Northwestern Memorial Hospital. He was one of the first three hospitalists at Northwestern Memorial Hospital and helped to shape the development of that program which now includes more than 60 hospitalists. In 2010, he completed a Master’s of Science Degree in Clinical Investigation. He also completed a certificate program in Healthcare Quality and Patient Safety. Dr. Barsuk currently serves as Associate Program Director in the Internal Medicine residency program and the Director of Simulation and Patient Safety at Feinberg School of Medicine.

Dr. Barsuk focused the last ten years of his research on optimizing physician, nurse, and paramedic clinical performance using simulation technology. These efforts have been based on the mastery learning theoretical framework, and his research team uses rigorous, validated standards for healthcare provider training. His team has published over 60 articles on this topic that demonstrate how this training approach improves clinical skills and patient care and outcomes while lowering healthcare costs. Dr. Barsuk’s research has been funded by several private and government organizations including the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality and the National Institutes of Health. Additionally, Dr. Barsuk is recognized internationally as a researcher in medical education and patient safety. He has been given national awards from the Society of Hospital Medicine, Association of American Medical Colleges, and the Society for Simulation in Healthcare. He was also named a top ten hospitalist in 2011 by the American College of Physicians. Dr. Barsuk served on the Society of Hospital Medicine’s education committee and has written curricula for procedure training for physicians nationally. He currently serves as an Associate Editor for the Journal of Hospital Medicine. He is sought internationally to lecture on how the use of simulation-based medical education improves patient safety.

Dr. Barsuk is trained as an internal medicine physician and clinically practices as a hospitalist. Hospitalists are dedicated inpatient physicians who exclusively work in a hospital. Therefore, Dr. Barsuk has expertise in the care of medical inpatients. He cares for patients independently in the hospital as well as supervises and teaches resident physicians. He has extensive knowledge in hospital-based quality improvement and patient safety practices. He has specific interests in bedside procedures and the care of patients with heart failure.
