About the speakers

Daniel Scott, M.D., is Assistant Dean of Simulation and Student Integration and holds the Frank H. Kidd Jr., M.D., Distinguished Professorship in Surgery. He studied biomedical engineering at Southern Methodist University and completed medical school at Louisiana State University School of Medicine, graduating as a member of the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Society. He then pursued residency in general surgery and completed a two-year fellowship in advanced laparoscopic surgery at UT Southwestern. Upon joining as faculty at Tulane University School of Medicine in 2002, he established a simulation and training laboratory, a laparoscopic fellowship program, a multidisciplinary bariatric surgery program, and a robotic surgery program.

Dr. Scott joined UT Southwestern in 2005 and now serves as Director of the UT Southwestern Simulation Center. He practices as a general surgeon, specializing in minimally invasive and bariatric surgery. Dr. Scott is also nationally and internationally recognized as an expert in medical education, with a strong interest in competency-based training.

Krystle Campbell joined UT Southwestern as Director of Simulation Center Operations in 2019, bringing international experience in the development and expansion of simulation programs. Ms. Campbell received her Bachelor of Science in biology from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire and her Master of Science in medical and health care simulation from Drexel University College of Medicine in 2017. She is currently pursuing a Doctor of Health Administration at Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC). Ms. Campbell is internationally known in health care simulation and innovation, serving as the Vice Chair of the Society for Simulation in Healthcare’s Advocacy Subcommittee and an Innovation Ambassador for MUSC.

In her role, Ms. Campbell manages strategy initiatives for our 49,000-square-foot Simulation Center – overseeing all finance, administrative, operational data, and reporting functions. She also develops and deploys advanced simulation learning experiences for students and faculty.
