Dr. Tobias Everett was recruited in 2012 as a clinician-educator. Everett is a British-trained paediatric anesthesiologist and fellow by examination of the Royal College of Anaesthetists (UK), with subspecialty certification in regional anesthesia from the European Society of Regional Anaesthesia. His master of science in clinical trials is from University of London (UK).

He leads the Simulation Program for the University of Toronto Department of Anesthesia and is the Director of Simulation for the SickKids Department of Anesthesia. He has overseen the international expansion of the Managing Emergencies in Pediatric Anesthesia (MEPA) simulation course such that the standardized curriculum is available in multiple centres on five continents. His academic interests include simulation-based medical education and medical education research with a specific interest in interprofessional team debriefing and simulation-based assessments.  He is the principal investigator in international multi-centre education research studies and has received grant funding from the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada and the Canadian Anesthesiologists’ Society.  He sits on the Board of Directors of the International Pediatric Simulation Society and was 2015 chair of the annual scientific meeting of that society. 

Everett has worked with the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeon of Canada, as faculty on their National Simulation Education and Training program, as the Toronto representative on the Canadian National Anesthesia Simulation Curriculum and member of the organizing committee for the annual Royal College Simulation Summit. Everett has received international awards for his work in simulation-based medical education and multiple awards for his various teaching activities within anesthesia and beyond.
