Professional Background

Sarah E. Peyre, EdD is the Assistant Dean for Interprofessional Education and an Associate Professor of Surgery, Nursing, Medical Humanities and Bioethics at the University of Rochester. Dr. Peyre's primary role is as Executive Director of the Institute for Innovative Education (IIE), where she leads advances in health professions education through simulation, adaptive technology, team science and novel approaches to information and education delivery. The IIE is a centralized matrix of services that includes the Miner Library and the Center for Experiential Learning, and is supported by IT and educational specialists with expertise in instructional design, simulation and program development. The IIE supports the educational mission of the School of Medicine and Dentistry, School of Nursing, Eastman Institute of Oral Health, Strong Hospital and the Faculty Practice Group. Working extensively in the field of simulation, Peyre's career has evolved to focus on high-performing healthcare teams and the educational innovations that support collaborative care models. She is nationally known for her work in interprofessional education including curriculum development on disparities in healthcare, leadership and technology. Her Macy Faculty Scholars Project is focused on identifying and teaching best practices in the patient and family-centered use of the electronic medical record (EMR). Before joining the URMC faculty in 2011, she directed Education and Research for the STRATUS Center for Medical Simulation at the Brigham and Women's Hospital and was assistant professor of Surgery at Harvard Medical School. She earned her Bachelor of Arts in Sociology from the University of California at Berkeley, and her Master in Science of Medical Education and Doctorate in Educational Psychology from the Rossier School of Education at the University of Southern California.
