Undergraduate, Graduate, and PhD students across the Colleges of Engineering, Nursing and Architecture and Design have all been involved in HITS projects in a variety of capacities.
- Industrial Systems Engineering undergraduate senior design team is trying to build a simulation model for the Fort Sander Regional Hospital to investigate how to improve the performance of a new Emergency department. The ISE team will work together with some from the College of Nursing.
- Students in the Graphic Design program have been integral partners in the development of a nursing application designed to assist in simulation education. The work has resulted in several Undergraduate Research Awards.
Working with the HITS team exposes students to important skill sets such as interdisciplinary team management, IRB protocol, and the level of rigor required of a research project.
UT and Outside Campus Collaborators
The key element of a HITS project is collaboration. Professionals who are partner collaborators come to us from diversified backgrounds. One of the many benefits of collaborating with the HITS team is access to rich university resources with expertise in diverse areas. Working across several disciplines affords fresh perspectives, new ideas and talent. We welcome new collaborators to bring us your ideas for potential collaborative opportunities. If you are interested in collaborating with our team, please contact one of the HITS Co-Directors: Dr. Tami Wyatt (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Dr. Xueping Li (email@example.com).
We seek candidates with expertise in one or more of HITS Lab emphases in (1) Research and development of healthcare related technology; (2) Integration of non-traditional technology into the healthcare environment; (3) Engagement in telehealth and simulation research; (4) Development of inter-professional research and collaborations, (5) Big Data analytics, and (6) artificial intelligence.
The 4th Monday of every month, the HITS Team is available from 12:00-1:00pm in the Smart Home. Anyone interested in simulation activities in your own research, or in the research conducted at HITS is welcome to join. No RSVP necessary. Upcoming dates for Fall 2019 include:
November 25 • October 28 • September 23 • March 25
