Ryan Brydges

Ryan Brydges

Director of Research, Allan Waters Family Simulation Centre
Professorship in Technology-Enabled Education, St. Michael’s Hospital
Assistant Professor, Dept. of Medicine, University of Toronto

Ryan Brydges conducts research in three related domains: (i) clarifying how healthcare trainees and professionals manage (through self-regulation) their life-long learning, (ii) understanding how to optimize the instructional design of healthcare simulation (and other technology-enhanced learning modalities) for training and assessment of healthcare professionals (iii) identifying best practices in the training and assessment for bedside invasive medical procedures (e.g., lumbar puncture, central line insertion, thoracentesis).

Through studies of self-regulation and simulation, Ryan aims to understand how training interventions translate into healthcare professional’s behaviours. Most specifically, his work with procedural skills will serve as a proof of concept for developing novel model of ‘competency-based education’ in both academic and community hospital settings. That research arm will have implications for patient care as well as health care system reform (e.g., identifying a need for specialized procedural service teams), and healthcare resource utilization (e.g., providing input to Choosing Wisely initiatives).

Ryan obtained his MSc and PhD from the Institute of Medical Science, University of Toronto. He then completed an NSERC postdoctoral fellowship with Dr. Glenn Regehr at the University of British Columbia.
