Simone Gruenig graduated from the University of Ottawa (BSc) and the University of Toronto (MSc) – her research focused on high-risk thoracic patients and discharge planning. Her first job was in acute care in a major teaching hospital in Toronto. From there she moved to Vancouver and began work as an educational support physiotherapist to the acute care physiotherapy teams at VGH. There she instigated the unique 4:1 clinical placement model and was the catalyst in using patient simulation as an educational tool for the act of suctioning. In 2008 Simone started teaching in the Department of Physical Therapy at UBC, and she now is the primary cardiorespiratory clinical instructor. Simone also has a passion for international health, and in 2005 became affiliated with an NPO that supports a small children’s rehabilitation facility in Cusco, Peru. She has been able to teach and practice at this facility as well as support the facility’s need for equipment. In 2010 she began teaching post-graduate chest radiology courses throughout British Columbia and in 2012 started teaching these courses on a national level.
