Dr. Sims completed her surgical training at the Massachusetts General Hospital in 2003. She was appointed as Instructor of Surgery at Harvard Medical School (2003-2004) and completed a fellowship in Laparoscopic Surgery in 2004. She subsequently trained at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania and completed a fellowship in Traumatology and Surgical Critical Care. She is board certified in General Surgery and Surgical Critical Care.

Dr. Sims is currently an Associate Professor of Surgery at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine and is the Medical Director for the Dulles 6 Surgical Unit and a unit-based clinical leader. Her clinical projects include an observational study investigating the neuroendocrine profile of trauma patients undergoing massive resuscitation, the use of hormonal supplementation in trauma, and the implementation of a domestic violence screening tool in the trauma bay. Her laboratory is investigating mitochondrial dysfunction in late stage hemorrhagic shock and the development of targeted resuscitative solutions. (AVERT Shock Trial)
