Dr. Levy has been involved in simulation since 2001 when he was asked to plan, design, budget and eventually be the Director of the Patient Simulation Center. We offer courses in Crisis Resource Management, Difficult Airway management as well as basic airway management for other hospital departments. We are also heavily involved with the medical school and have done interprofessional work with our respiratory therapy and nursing colleagues. He has served as a section chair for the International Meeting on Medical Simulation (IMSH) in 2011, and as co-chair for the meeting in 2012. He also has served on their Board of Directors.

He was in the inaugural class of the AMT in 2007, received the UT Distinguished Teaching Professor in 2008, inducted into UT Academy of Health Science Educators in 2010 and holder of the Susan Brown Logan Endowed Professorship of the AMT from 2015-2017. Dr. Levy was the recipient of the Regent’s Outstanding Teacher award in 2017.
From a research perspective, he is interested in looking at medical errors, correlating learning styles to simulation training and best practices for teaching machine troubleshooting.
