Welcome to the online portfolio for Steven Andersen, MD, PhD. I am currently a postdoctoral research fellow at the Simulationcentre at Rigshospitalet, Copenhagen Academy for Medical Education and Simulation (CAMES), and the Department of Otorhinolaryngology—Head & Neck Surgery, Rigshospitalet, Copenhagen, Denmark.
My principal research interests are otology and clinical otorhinolaryngology, post-graduate medical education and training, and computers and medical technology. My research has focused on virtual reality simulation of the mastoidectomy procedure in training novices, and technical skills assessment.
During my research fellowship I have also researched middle ear disease and post-operative clinical outcome of surgery and gained experience with clinical databases, questionnaires and audiology.
My research plans are to further investigate virtual reality simulation, middle ear disease and implantable hearing devices using an integrative approach with the ultimate goal of advancing training and improving patient outcome in otology.
