Taryn S. Taylor, MD, PhD, FRCSC completed medical school and residency in Obstetrics & Gynecology at Western University. During her residency training, she completed a PhD in Health Professions Education through Maastricht University, the Netherlands as a Clinician Investigator Program trainee. In 2017, her doctoral thesis entitled “Exploring Fatigue as a Social Construct: Implications for Work Hour Reform in Postgraduate Medical Education” was recognized by the largest international conference in medical education, the Association of Medical Education of Europe, with the PhD prize for best doctoral research. Dr. Taylor subsequently completed a Senior Fellowship in Simulation Education through the Department of Innovation in Medical Education and the University of Ottawa Skills and Simulation Centre. 
Through her PhD training in Health Professions Education, she developed methodological expertise in constructivist grounded theory (CGT) research and as an early career investigator, she has successfully accrued more than $190,000 in competitive funding support to expand her program of research. Dr Taylor’s fellowship training in simulation education has prepared her to design, deploy and debrief interdisciplinary and interprofessional theatre-based and in situ simulations that adhere with good principles of educational design.
Presently, she is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Obstetrics & Gynaecology, London Health Sciences Centre and a Scientist at the Centre for Education Research & Innovation (CERI), Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry. As an academic generalist in Obstetrics & Gynaecology, Dr. Taylor enjoys finding new ways of engaging trainees and optimizing the clinical learning environment to ensure exemplary training and patient care. Her clinical practice includes general obstetrics and primarily office-based gynaecology. 
In her CERI Scientist role, Dr. Taylor has continued to develop her research program exploring the nature and implications of fatigue in the clinical performance of physicians and trainees. One emerging research interest involves novel approaches to simulation-based research that seek to enhance interprofessional and inter-disciplinary team performance.
