Tony Errichetti earned his PhD in psychoeducation from Temple University with a focus on group dynamics and organizational development. In his first career he was a professor of psychology and used simulations to train therapists.
Since that time he has specialized in standardized patient (SP) education. He started by serving as a standardized patient to train psychiatry residents, and then became an SP trainer in 1992 at the National Board of Medical Examiners in Philadelphia. He is now director of doctor-patient communication assessment at the National Board of Osteopathic Medical Examiners. Between his two national board positions, he has worked for over 20 years developing and directing medical school and hospital-based simulations centers in Philadelphia and New York.
Dr. Errichetti started the first MS program in Medical/Healthcare Simulation in 2012 at the NYIT-College of Osteopathic Medicine. He is proud to be teaching in Drexel’s MS in Medical and Healthcare Simulation program.
In 2011 he co-founded The Simulation Studio, where he continues to serve as co-director, organizing patient simulation conferences for SPs and SP trainers at medical and nursing schools.
