Dr. JoDee Anderson is an associate professor and the medical director of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unitat Oregon Health & Science University.

She completed her pediatric residency and neonatal-perinatal fellowship at Stanford University where she focused on the development of simulation-based curricula in neonatal resuscitation, pediatric advanced life support, ECMO crisis management, and crisis resource management behaviors. She serves as the director of pediatric simulation education at OHSU.  

She obtained a masters degree in education through University of Cincinnati as she worked to validate expert modeling as a strategy to improve skill acquisition in simulation. She serves as chair of the Education Committee for the Society for Simulation in Healthcare; she was a member of the Board of Directors for the Oregon Simulation Alliance, and she was an investigator in the EXPRESS trial. She has more than 16 years of experience in simulation and she has developed interprofessional simulation curricula to improve the performance of interprofessional teams in high-risk environments. In 2011, she was appointed as the medical director for The S.T.A.B.L.E Simulation Program, an internationally renowned resuscitation-training program in neonatal care. She was also instrumental in the development of the Simulation Instructor DVD for The AAP Neonatal Resuscitation Program. Together with colleagues she developed and validated the Behavioral Assessment Tool (BAT) for simulation, a widely used and accepted instrument in simulation education and research.

As a native Oregonian she enjoys all the outdoors have to offer; she spends her free time with her family skiing, camping, biking, and traveling.
