Dr. Levine has developed innovative programs of simulation-based education and assessment. His team’s CARE (Clinical Anesthesia ReEntry) program is perhaps the most notable and has provided simulation-based assessment and retraining for anesthesiologist seeking clinical reentry or independent institutions and state licensing boards seeking physician competency assessment. In addition to being the Editor-in-Chief of ASA’s new Editorial Board for Interactive Computer-Based Education developing SimSTAT, an innovative immersive computer based educational simulation product, Dr. Levine is an editor on the ASA Editorial Board on Simulation Education, as well as a member of the Board of Directors of the Society for Simulation in Healthcare. Dr. Levine is the Senior Editor of the reference textbook The Comprehensive Textbook of Healthcare Simulation, a 50-chapter multidisciplinary reference authored by the world’s experts in health care simulation. He is also the Senior Editor of the series Comprehensive Healthcare Simulation, a library of individual companion textbooks that so far includes editions focusing on pediatrics, emergency medicine, anesthesiology, surgery and surgical subspecialties, obstetrics and gynecology, neurosurgery, multi-professional training, simulation center development, simulation technician training, and patient safety, systems integration and enhancement.
Dr. Levine has been the recipient of numerous departmental, institutional, national and international awards. Most notably he is the 2010 recipient of the IARS Teaching Recognition Award, the 2017 ACGME Palmer J.
