New CHIPS Leader Drawn by Excellence in Simulation at UTHSC, Looks to Future


Tara Jackson Lemoine, DO, came to the University of Tennessee Health Science Center to lead the Center for Healthcare Improvement and Patient Simulation (CHIPS) on the Memphis campus, as much for the state-of-the-art facility, as for the outstanding staff members who operate it.

“The building is beautiful, and it is a standout, but I think the people inside it, the simulation experts who are a part of this program, are the people who set the standard for what health care simulation is in this country,” Dr. Lemoine said. “So, it is not just being able to work in the building itself, it is the core CHIPS simulation team who really are the impetus for me being here. Additionally, the commitment of the senior campus leadership to simulation and their clear understanding of its value in education and the impact it has on health care, were the drivers for me joining CHIPS.
