Dr. Kalet is known for her leadership in the work of simulation with standardized patients, creating simulations where residents feel safe to practice (and fail) as they learn everything from communication skills to developing and executing treatment decisions. She has also contributed to the creation of outcome metrics in the form of checklists and global rating scales to meaningfully assess learners across the spectrum of training and practice.

Dr. Kalet has authored over 200 peer-reviewed publications with more than 12 years of uninterrupted funding from Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) as well as funding from the National institute of Health and National Science Foundation. She is also the co-editor of the book “Remediation in Medical Education: A Midcourse Correction,” among many other groundbreaking achievements.
