The UC Davis Health Department of Emergency Medicine offers a one-year Emergency Airway Management Fellowship. The goal of the fellowship is to condense the knowledge and experience of expert airway managers into a single year, allowing the fellowship graduate to become the airway expert of their group and educate colleagues and other practitioners about safer, more effective methods of airway management. 

The fellowship provides multidisciplinary training in emergency and difficult airway management including in the Emergency Department, operating rooms, intensive care units, and prehospital settings. Clinical experience is obtained with faculty from Emergency Medicine, Anesthesiology, Critical Care, Otolaryngology, and Surgery. For further pediatric airway experience, the fellow may also become credentialed at Shriners Hospital and work with pediatric anesthesiologists during operative cases. 

Didactics education includes lectures, hands-on training, and courses from some of the most recognized names in airway management. Several reference texts are included for reading throughout the fellowship. 

The fellow will work part-time in the Emergency Department at UC Davis Medical Center and at the Mather Field Veterans Affairs Medical Center (VAMC) in Sacramento.

Interested applicants should contact Erik Laurin, Emergency Airway Management Fellowship director.
