Mary Holtschneider, Steering Committee Member


Tell us about yourself.

I serve as the Simulation Education Coordinator and Co-Director of the Interprofessional Advanced Fellowship in Clinical Simulation at the Durham VA Health Care System.  I also am the Nursing Program Manager for Duke Area Health Education Center (AHEC).  I have been involved with health professions education in a variety of capacities over the past twenty years and enjoy working with interprofessional faculty, learners, and teams.

What do you hope to get out of Duke AHEAD?

I love being part of Duke AHEAD as it provides many opportunities for professional growth, networking, and education! 

What can Duke AHEAD do for you?

Duke AHEAD is a unique program that has helped me connect more fully with other health professions educators who share my passion for interprofessional education and development.

Why did you join Duke AHEAD?

I joined Duke AHEAD to increase my involvement in our broader interprofessional community, to enhance my skills as a health professions educator, and to engage with other like-minded individuals to make a difference in the way we educate our diverse learners.  I see all of this as leading to the ultimate goal of impacting our organizations in a positive manner and enhancing our patient care outcomes.
