About Lennox Huang

I have been involved with simulation since 2005 when I led the creation of the McMaster Children’s Hospital Simulation Program in Hamilton, Ontario. Creating a program from the ground-up required significant multi-disciplinary collaboration and bringing both hospital and university leadership towards a common goal. My involvement with IPSS began in 2009 as a conference attendee and workshop facilitator and has expanded most recently to work on the organizing committee for the 2015 IPSSW in Vancouver.

I practice clinically as a pediatric intensivist and I am currently the Chair of Pediatrics at McMaster University, and Chief of Pediatrics at McMaster Children’s Hospital. In these roles I successfully oversaw a major expansion in clinical programs, faculty numbers and academic activity for a large academic department. I bring significant practical leadership experience, especially in the areas of change management and strategic growth. I will be transitioning this spring to a new role as Chief Medical Officer and VP for Medical and Academic Affairs at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto and I hope to bring additional systems based leadership experience to IPSS in a more official role on the Board of Directors.

The pediatric simulation community has always impressed me with its level of collaboration and innovation. This has been most evident at the IPSSW gatherings where I have personally formed long lasting friendships and professional relationships. I believe that IPSS as an organization is at a critical juncture in its evolution. To be successful and sustainable will require a strategic approach to growth and close management and oversight of the organization’s operations. The challenge for the future will be to achieve this while maintaining the tight-knit collaborative culture that characterizes our community. I hope to have the opportunity to serve the pediatric simulation community on the IPSS board and help guide IPSS towards a successful future.
