Dr. Christina Miller is an Assistant Professor of Anesthesiology and Critical Care Medicine at Johns Hopkins. Her clinical focus is in neuroanesthesia inducing electroconvulsive therapy, as well as general OR and trauma call. She works with residents daily and has been involved in the formal residency education curriculum and Simulation Based Education since 2010.
In 2015, she became co-director of the annual Simulation Boot Camp program, which prepares nearly 30 CA-1 residents, each of whom participate in ten high-fidelity simulation experiences over one week encompassing common intra-operative emergencies informed by clinical experience. In addition, she organizes and runs simulation as well as hands-on workshops for the residents twice a month as part of a longitudinal experiential learning curriculum. This program has been a platform for published education research on self-efficacy, learning, performance and cognitive load.
Dr. Miller has expertise in the use of operating and programming high fidelity manikins and running simulation experiences in real time with a portfolio of over twenty simulation scenarios ranging from basic skill experiences to complex multi-disciplinary high acuity situations. Dr. Miller also partners with experts in specialty fields within and outside anesthesia to design simulations specific to various content needs. During the COVID-19 pandemic where in-person learning was restricted, Dr. Miller modified existing curriculum for tele-simulation, virtual learning and developed new curriculum for safe PPE practice and management of the difficult airway for frontline providers.
