University of Cincinnati College of Medicine
Henry Ford Hospital
Dr. Farris graduated from Michigan State University with a B.S. in Biochemistry and went on to the University of Cincinnati for medical school, where she fell in love with Emergency Medicine. After completing residency and serving as a chief resident at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, Michigan, Dr. Farris became faculty at the Duke University Emergency Medicine residency. Initially serving as the co-clerkship director, Dr. Farris later took on the Simulation Director role for the residency and eventually became the Assistant Program Director as well. Additionally, Dr. Farris participated in undergraduate medical education for the Duke School of Medicine as a Clinical Skills Course instructor and developed a new simulation curriculum for the medical school to introduce first year students to the clinical decision-making process in a controlled environment. After switching gears and working in Raleigh, NC, at the community training site for the UNC Emergency Medicine residency for several years and participating more peripherally with medical student and resident education, Dr. Farris is excited to join the team at Prisma Health and become immersed in the budding residency and the new medical school. She is serving as the Assistant Medical Director of the Simulation Center at Prisma Health.
