Dr. Haji is an Assistant Professor in the Division of Neurosurgery and a Medical Education Scholar at Queen’s University. Having recently completed a clinical fellowship in Pediatric Neurosurgery at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, his clinical interests include both Pediatric and Adult Neurosurgery, including Epilepsy surgery. His research interests include medical education and global health. His research program investigates (i) how the design of simulation training influences learner’s engagement, (ii) how to design training curricula to optimize learning outcomes, and (iii) how to translate educational innovations in medical and surgical education to low-resource settings through global health and global surgical partnerships. As a surgeon and educator, he has a passion for improving health services though the innovative and evidence-based use of simulation-based education, both at home and abroad. To that end, his recent work has focused on simulation curriculum development and faculty development in simulation pedagogy at a local, national, and international level. As a Medical Education Scholar, he looks forward to collaborating with the faculty and staff at Queen’s on these and other areas of interest for the Faculty of Health Sciences.
